Hey guys, I am looking at picking up a 24/47 soon, but are these as strong as the K98s? Can you take full advantage of the 8mm in them? These are .323 diameter correct?

Thanks

Many people regard them as more robust than K98's... Mine is rock solid. I shoot the hottest 8mm I know of in it without problems.

I haven't tried any "groups" with it yet. But I am glad you asked. That is something I will try and do with it one of the next times I go out!

The Yugo M24/47 is classified as a "medium length" action, meaning the magazine housing, receiver, and bolt are a few millimeters shorter than a Mauser K98.

If you plan on shooting 8mm Mauser out of the rifle, it's not a problem. However, if you plan on re-chambering this rifle to a 30-'06 or similar variant (.270 Win, .25-'06, etc) the magazine is too short to hold the cartridges.

Besides, why not own a piece of history, made by a country that doesn't exist anymore? ;)

My 24/47 is the smoothest Mauser action I own, with about 1.5 MOA with Bulgarian (I think) surplus. :D

I wouldn't have any interest in re-chambering it, I do reload however and would like to be able to exploit the caliber for all its worth which is why I asked about the strength.

Thanks guys.

Great rifles for the price,I have 2 but only shot this one so far.I have a saved target SR-1 target that the group was dead on bullseye nice and tight at 100yds but I don't have a photo.


Here is a paper plate I did for the shoot,decent but I shoot better with the SR-1 targets.


I recommend getting one,I doubt you'll be disappointed.

I wish i had one of these, then i would have an excuse to go out and buy more ammo. I haven't seen very many at gunshows and the ones i do are either 1. Beat up or 2. Outpriced, or both. If you see one that is priced right go for it.
