    I glommed several rifles today at an on-line auction, including this Yugo 24/52C Mauser. It looks decent, but completely covered in cosmo. Come to think of it, that may not be a bad thing.

    Pictures aren't the greatest...

    You well love this rifle. The Slavs did a outstanding job on re-arsenaling these VZ24's. You should find that most of the parts are number matched, more so than most Mauser style rifles. There are several variations of the 24/52C, do you know what one you are getting?

    Thanks cratebuilder.

    I'm not certain. Here are a few more pics...

    Expect they shoot high at 100 yds. They usually need a higher front sight post.
    If im not mistaken they start at 300 meters on the rear sight. Samcoglobal has the tall front sight if you need one.

    Are there some general differences between 24/47s and 24/52s?

    Thanks.

    Yes. The 24/47's are a re-arsenalled FN or Yugoslavian Model 24, which is an intermediate length large ring Mauser. The action is approximately 1/4 inch shorter then the standard length Mauser action.

    The 24/52C's are a re-arsenalled Czech VZ-24 , which is a standard length large ring Mauser.

    The Yugoslavian M48 is also an intermediate length large ring Mauser. A bolt from a 24/47 will fit in an M48, but a bolt from a 24/52C is too long to fit in the M48.

    The rifles from my last gun auction adventure arrived at my FFL, including the 24/52C. I got a chance to look it over before it went into his safe for the 10 day waiting period.

    The 24/52C looks new under all that cosmoline. The bolt, stock and floor plate all match the receiver. The bore is fantastic.

    I'll post a range report and more pics after the "cooling off" period.

    Did you have to alter the triangular cut out on the rear sight?

    No - you could if you wanted, but I left it as is. A little clearance on each side with a rectangular cut would be helpful, especially for off-hand hunting.

    I picked up my rifles last week from my FFL (after the 10 day waiting period), including the M24/52C.

    This one is in great shape. Blue is perfect, under all the cosmoline, and the bore is fantastic. The wood has few dents and dings, but looks solid. It is matching, except for the upper band.

    There is a lot of paper scraps sticking to the top of the barrel and upper band, which makes me wonder if this was wrapped in mummy wrap, or whatever the Yugoslavians used to store these weapons. It will take a heap of cleaning.

    At least there is no rust, corrosion or pitting...metal is perfect under all that cosmo.

    I got most of the metal cleaned up...the bore is really pristine. I guess cosmoline is our friend

    Gorgeous. I have found that placing the stock in a couple black garbage bags and leaving it in your car for a couple summer days gets a fair amount of cosmo out.

    Thanks, Stan

    Expecting a 105 degree day this Saturday...sounds like a perfect day for to "dashboard" the stock.
