    Default VZ 24 Japanese shipment rifle

    I got a call from a friend who took in a VZ 24 and asked me if I would be interested. He had checked it out and it is all matching, excellent condition, bore is like new, non import stamped and was a 1937. So I went and picked it up. We both knew nothing much about the VZ 24s, so when I brought it home, I started researching it. These are some pictures of it.
    We thought it was maybe a "rack number" painted on the stock. Found out it it's part of the "Kanji". I know it will be hard, but I will try to locate a marked sling for it.
    I had read that there was speculation over the original cleaning rod being blued, or in the white. I believe this one to be original and included pictures of it.

    Very cool! I've been on the hunt for one for my Japanese collection! Thanks for the motivation!
