Picked this up off another forum last week. Matching numbers on receiver, stock and bolt, the only numbers I see.
Not import marked, bore looks new, the whole thing seems about unissued condition. I've got two of the Persian 98/29 long rifles, this one is much cruder overall than the Czech guns. Trigger pull is very heavy, bolt operation is not very smooth.
I did put about 20rounds of cast bullet handloads through it today, and it shot pretty well despite the trigger and the very short sight radius.
I don't see these very much, so was pretty happy to find this one.
Any info anyone would care to share would be appreciated.

Nice looking Rifle, Just a beautiful crest...

Hey a question, How is the wood between the barrel band and the barrel, does that wood seem smooth or a little uneven..???

I ask only in that I have seen 2 and they had both had wood in that area that seemed rougher then the wood on the rest of the rifle...

Thanks for the nice comments, guys. RLEVM is teasing me, because I usually like the longer rifles, carbines not so much...
This one I had to have when I saw it, I've never seen one in real life, and only a few ever for sale on the internet. My understanding is that this is the Persian made version of the prewar mod 30 carbine made in Czechoslovakia for Persia.

Can you clarify that question, the wood between where? I'm home sick with a cold today, and my head feels like it's underwater.

Sorry you are under the weather and for the unclear question. Thought I had asked the question better, obviously not..

I am talking about the small part of wood that is between barrel band to the bayonet band. The two I had handled the wood just seemed uneven not as smooth as the rest of the stock.. Now I am not suggesting you would get splinters from it.. But it felt noticeable.

Hope you are feeling better..

Thanks for the clarification, and I'm feeling much better today :D

I would say that the feel of the wood in that area is just about the same as the rest of the stock...
