Help on a German Rifle G24t in 8x57Js
« on: April 09, 2013, 08:09:04 PM »
I'm looking at a Mauser, well not a K98, but probably not considered a Mauser but a G24t. The 8x57Js online are like $28 to $32 per box. I see this like the Steyr and a rifle that gets taken out once in awhile and shot. I've learned some by reading the following article:

G24t rifle

From what I've read, it should not have a turned down bolt. This is on Gunbroker, it's on my list along with a K98 and I've been looking around for one and have my name in some shops here.

G24t

This is the second one:

G24t Second One

I'm not in a big rush, I like looking sometimes and just saw this one. I know I seem like I want every gun in the world, but really just a few select ones ;-)

These rifles have a quite a history actually and after 43 the factory started producing K98s from what the pdf says and what I read before. Those K98s as I understand are very sot after also!

I have strong feelings about gun control. If there's a gun around, I want to be controlling it - Clint Eastwood

I find walks in the woods to be very relaxing. The fact that I am dragging a dead body is irrelevant

Figured it out, The first isn't a G.24(t), it was probably a post-war K98 made out of left-over German parts with Czech markings added.

That is a sexy looking rifle. Love the look I must admit. :)

Yeah it's like a well dressed Mauser, the G24t is a great history, did you read about it?

Not yet but I will research it tonight. Just like the old school look and wood grain.

Yeah it's a beautiful weapon and I like it as much or more than a K98 Mauser, more history anyway!!!

The shop I was at today also has a Steyr in a long rifle, only $249 - thinking about it but I think the carbine is cooler!!!

Cool and lengthily history indeed. They must have been built right from the get go because most of the changes were cosmetic.

Yeah, they are pretty cool indeed :D  I'm now looking at some Enfields instead locally, they are pretty nice also - if you look at the thread... One maybe saw action in WW I or II and the second is from the late 40s after the war. I am trying to build up my military collection at this time, so all are good! There is a gun show this weekend in Boise!
