While I was walking around the gunshow trying hard to distract myself from buying a G24(t) I ran into something I haven't really heard of or seen here. A seller had a Yugo model 1924 with a tag that said German modified. When I looked at it, it was indeed a Yugo model 1924 that all matching but the bolt, non import and had German style take down washers in the stock. On both of the take down disks there were tiny (I think) KRU stamps on them exactly like the ones stamped on my German modified VZ24. The take down washers weren't sitting in the stock flush and looked kind of sloppy. This made me start to wonder if this was a fantasy piece. On top of that he had a ton of other K98's on his table and all of them had different problems like a DOT 44 with a czech winter guard for a low cost of $1,200! Has anyone seen or heard of a German modified 1924? I'm thinking that is a fantasy piece due to the sloppiness of the washers and the other guns he had on the table. He wanted $425 for it. I looked in the book "Serbian and Yugoslav Mauser Rifles" and there was a section on the Chetnik carbine and how it was thought that a bunch of the carbines were seized by the Germans and sent to Germany. Is any of this plausible?
