    This is from a Mitchell's Mauser's M48 that I just recently traded off.

    Three different M24/47 Radionica 124's. First two are mine; I borrowed the pics of the third. Crests are the same, but note the different fonts used in the second example. The first example is SN "N23XX"; the second example is SN "N17XX", the third is SN "N21XX". Does anyone have a Rad' 124 that looks similar to the second example? If so, I'd really like to see photos.

    Best,
    Roger

    Is the Triangle 13 mark in the second pic just a common inspectors mark?

    Not been posting on this site as of late; thought I'd give this thread a bump and see if I still know anyone around here.

    That's interesting, John!
    It appears to be a Greek contract FN Model 1930 Mauser. I'm surprised they didn't scrub the original markings, but maybe they left them intact for a reason, like drawing attention to the fact that it's not an intermediate action rifle like the rest.

    I'm looking for pre-war Yugoslav Mauser bolt number 36455. If you have it, let me know! I'll pay a finder's fee on top of the selling price.

    Thanks Pat. I had it out for a trial run this afternoon, it shoots POA @ 100 yards. The bolt is a bit sticky, both chambering and extracting. It may just need a bit more cleaning and lubrication of the both and trigger internals, it seemed to smooth out a bit after a few rounds. I only had time to put 15 rounds through it, but from an accuracy standpoint I was very satisfied.

    I have a well-worn Greek M1930 rifle, the stock and bands on this one are identical to that configuration so I know this isn't some put-together "Frankenmauser", and the stock has several of the typical Yugoslavian stamps commonly found on other Yugo rebuilds.

    Are there any other examples of a Yugoslavian M30 rifle? I've never seen another one so I grabbed this and the price was right. I picked up a "Preduce 44" marked bayonet for it this afternoon as well, and added a correct Yugo cleaning rod to it several days ago. I'll take and post full-length photos of it in the next several days.

    Not any other post-war Yugoslav reworked ones that I'm aware of, but I don't track or collect those, either. Anything left in-country was fair game, and anything outside of the Mauser FOWs could always be sold to other countries or melted for scrap. There was quite an assortment of arms in Yugoslavia after WWII, even some left overs from the First and Second Balkan Wars.

    EDIT TO ADD: You might already be aware of it, but the Zeta block of rifles like yours were delivered to Greece prior to the German/Italian invasion on 1941, so this one could have landed in Yugoslavian by any one or combination of several possibilities. There were also quite a few resistance groups from both countries that crossed over and back across mountain ranges in the region. This probably accounts at least in part for the significant number of Greek Model 1930, Yugoslav Model 1924 and German K98k rifles imported from Turkey.
