Recently purchased a Yugoslavian M24/47 (stamped on left side of receiver)with a nearly rubbed or worn off Yugoslavian crest. It has what appears to be a Cyrillic serial number (ending in or followed by "44" which is larger than the rest of the Cyrillic stamped number) on the receiver in addition to a four digit Arabic number on receiver, barrel and stock.
I can not find any information about the M24/47 in my Mauser book. Would like to know the history of this rifle. Can you help me?
