Start of page 2 REPOST of Old Rifles' WWII German use of Yugoslavian Rifles
I had to relocate these photos because this page was not archived. These photos from the original page 2 have been taken from the primary web sources and a few more added; and these do enlarge.

Source of photos https://forums.gunboards.com/showthread ... -1924-post

MWT"S 1924 Yugo Mauser with a bolt that exhibits German use but does not match the rifle. MWT's close up views enlarged (if you are not a Gunboards member). All pictures are from Runner's above post and shown the markings and details. The original source has many more views but as tiny thumbnail views. Three rifles are shown in that interesting link.

Second example Runner
Runner's Yugo 1924 has no signs of German use, but the bolt does not match in the rifle. Rifle photo close up views . Some nice views of the stock markings.

On Runner's 1924 Yugo Mauser the bolt does not match although it remains un-blued. A tarnished, polished, in the white bolt. I added more photos of Runner's Rifle.

The M1924b shown in the pics in post #13 is mine.
(added This link: https://forums.gunboards.com/showthread ... -1924-post )
I took some better, more focused pics of it today and will post tomorrow in a dedicated M1924b thread so as not to clutter this one (and make internet searches a little easier). see 1924b here , viewtopic.php?f=25&t=4078

The rifle in post #14 looks like a mixmaster that saw service maybe post-WWII. On that note: A number of matching, import marked M1924 rifles have been found that were imported from Turkey. The story of how they got there is really interesting, and worthy of telling all by itself. They were accompanied by some K98k rifles and M1930 Greek contract Mausers, too.

72 USMC, your rifle in posts #15 and #16 definitely shows German mods. That's a great example of a rifle that received some subtle, easily missed mods that most potential buyers would overlook over simple, forgivable ignorance. The German capture rifles really reward careful, patient scrutiny.
