M24/27 is a great 8mm

Hey DoctorXRing, I was at the show on Sunday, and believe it or not, I didn't buy anything. However, I do already have a really nice 24/47 (pic below, if I was successful), and it's a great shooter, too. By applying a thin film of gun oil over the "Preduzece" stamping on the receiver, I was able to discern that this one was one of those originally built by FN in Belgium (rather than built under license in Yugoslavia in the 20s and 30s) in 1924 (or soon thereafter) for the royal yugoslav army, and then later rebuilt in 1947 (or soon thereafter) by Tito's boys. I'd guess your stock is original, whereas mine is new 1947 wood, unblemished (yet). Why don't you come out and shoot it at the Vintage Rifle Match in April? Any military rifle designed before 1945 is eligible.
