Howdy y'all! Long time listener, first time caller...

I recently came into a vz24. Romanian origins I think. When I disassembled it for cleaning, I noticed the tip of the firing pin was broken or ground off.

I've heard tell that the pin from either a k98 or a G98 will fit without issue. Has anyone had experience with this. Confirm/deny?

Thank you!

I can't figure out how to take the scope mount off. Posted a pic later in the thread

Thank you kindly. I ordered one for a K98 off eBay. Fingers crossed!

Another question if y'all don't mind

The one I got has a scope mount on it. Taking off the back looks self-explanatory, but the front looks odd. There is only one small screw in the dead center of the front side that I can see. It's a flathead, and it's in there very tight, so I didn't want to lay into it until I can confirm that it is indeed a screw, and will remove the mount. Here is a pic:

Is that how it comes off? If not, how do I do it?

Thank you again

Soak in Kroil or 50:50 mix of acetone and tranny fluid. Impact driver with properly hollow ground bit. My advice though is not to remove it. You obviously have a sniper edition and tampering would likely devalue. But it is yours and do as you please.

:o First determine if that is an actual sniper Vz see

If it is, :scared-eek: :scared-eek: do not mess with it, keep it original. :doh: :doh: :snooty: :snooty:
Do not devalue the rifle by 50%. An original sniper with mounts. You buy an original scope and have a nice collectable. To have that is very lucky, use it to trade for almost any other non sniper rifle. FIX the firing pin but leave the mounts and stock finish intact on that rare bird if it is original. I have never even seen an original VZ 24 sniper. You are freaking me out. Do some research. Do not mess with the rifle until you are sure its not an original sniper. DOES THE BENT BOLT MATCH THE RECEIVER ?????? If its a sporter then its common abused garbage you can have fun shooting , but if its an original matching sniper just missing the scope KEEP IT INTACT.
see and note price range :o :shock: :mrgreen:

:hand: Please post some pictures so the experts can tell you if its a sporter or a so very rare intact sniper rifle. Its like finding a gold coin in the dirt on an archaeological excavation. Never happens :roll:

The best I can tell it is indeed a genuine sniper, but I could be wrong. I had a local guy tell me they didn't make them better per se, but when they'd test fire them, the ones that shot the best right off the line would get used for the sniper models.

The numbers on the receiver, bolt, and stock all match. There is a 4 digit number on the front scope mount which doesn't seem to match the other numbers. The rear mount has no numbers that I can see. The stock has 2 other numbers below the serial. They are hard to read, but I think they're "01" and "3825" or "3325"

The "RR" starting the serial leads me to believe it's Romanian. The guy I got it from (who knows nothing about guns) thought it was Russian. I assumed he was bringing me another Mosin 91/30. I was surprised to see this show up.

I plan on keeping it all original. I cleaned the metal with brass wool and oil, and the stock was black with grime so I cleaned it witch acetone and BLO'd it. I have a few surplus rifles, so I was careful to do anything that would really mess with the value.

The only reasons I wanted to remove the front mount were to see the crest that's under it, and also it makes it hard to sight. The mounts are channeled so you can see the iron sights, but not easily.

Anyways, here's some pics. I'm happy to hear the excitement. I have good luck with sup rifles. My Kar 88 ended up being all German and never got "modified" at all. Was captured before it even got the Z stamp.

You would get more hits if you change topic to" VZ 24 sniper" Or start a new post with the close up photos so the mauser experts respond. We need to see comments from Martin08, http://www.Prussia.us1, gew98, SgtSteiner, stan61 :arrow: :arrow: all mauser guys that know their stuff. In the new post it would be interesting to photo document this rifle with tons of photos :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:
So cool, beyond belief, what a find :o

In the spirit of keeping all original, you might consider having the FP tip repaired with weld and re-shaped. This fellow does great work and has fast turn-around: http://www.accu-tig.com/
