To Clarify {and someone correct me if i'm wrong (though if i am i'm surprised i haven't blown up yet)}...

VZ24 is a full length action mauser rifle with a straight bolt handle made in czechoslovakia. Some beaters came through recently and good ones slightly before that. Heard they're good, never bothered to get one.
K98 is a full length action mauser rifle with a bent bolt handle made in germany. RC out there, as well as yugo capture right now(pretty sure sarco has some.) France and romania have some captured ones out there too in decent shape, not around in huge numbers now.
M24/47 is an intermediate length action mauser rifle with a straight bolt handle, made in belgium or yugoslavia. I got one from aim, they're quite pretty and it shoots nicely.
M48 is an intermediate length action mauser rifle with a bent bolt handle, made in yugoslavia. I haven't bothered to get one.

Length of action on yugo rifles means the bolts are not interchangeable with other full length mauser actions. But its possible to put 24/47 bolts on m48s and vice versa (samco has some 24/47's with bent bolts.) VZ 24 and k98 mauser parts are, with manufacturing tolerances kept in mind, interchangable including bolts and i've seen RC's at gunshows that are k98 rifles with VZ-24 bolts.

If i may direct you to some RC k98's http://www.allans-armory.com/aaresult.php?PageId=45 and some VZ24's http://www.rguns.net/rifles/rifles-bolt.shtml
