Hey guys. I posted this on the K98k board a month or so ago (so sorry if you've already seen it) and I've been meaning to post it here for a while; hoping I can get some information or that someone can point me towards some good reference material. I do know that the rifle is a Vz.23 brought back from WWII by my Great Uncle Dave. Uncle Dave served with the 5th US Army in Italy. He also brought back a Nazi-marked Browning Hi-power. The Vz.23 appears to be all matching and in original Czech configuration. Other than that, I know very little about the rifle. Could anyone point me towards a good reference on the Vz.23 or WWII German use of Czech Mausers? I'm going to bring some of my WWII German firearms for a class presentation soon, and I would love to know a little more about this rifle.
