Only one rifle left in like new original condition with excellent bore and all matching serial numbers.

Original Yugo M24/47 rifles in good to very good condition. We just received them from Ethiopia. These rifles were send with other military equipment to Ethiopia in the 11950`s and 60`s. Only a limited quantity available. C&R or FFL required.
After World War II, many existing M24s were rebuilt with new 23.4-inch barrels and stocks of walnut, teak, or other available hardwood. Since the project kicked off in 1947, the rebuilds were dubbed M24/47s. A lot of these rifles were churned out of the Kragujevac Arsenal—now renamed “Zastava”—continuing into the early ’50s. However, as the newer standard-issue Mauser M48 became readily available, most of the reconfigured M24/47 battle rifles saw little use.

As a result, M24/47s are typically in outstanding condition but have little sentimental value or historic panache. They are ideal shooters.

The bulk of M24/47 importation to the United States occurred in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and many are in prime condition. It’s worth noting that the Yugoslavian arsenals, prepping the rifles for a half-century of storage, applied Cosmoline with shocking generosity. Removing it all effectively can be a monumental task.

Yugoslavia’s M24/47 features an intermediate-length Mauser-type action, a five-round staggered box magazine, a straight bolt handle, dual opposing locking lugs, and a full-length rotating claw-type extractor. A rather large hinged pull-catch at the left rear of the action allows bolt removal.

The safety is a three-position type. Rotated to the far right, it locks the bolt and blocks the firing pin. In the center position, the bolt may be opened to clear the chamber and unload the rifle, but the firing pin is still blocked. Like many battle rifles of yesteryear, when in this vertical center position, the wing-type safety also blocks the line of sight, serving as an instant reminder should the user forget to disengage the safety before trying to fire the rifle. Far left, of course, is the “Fire” position.

Yugoslavian M24/47 Mauser-Pattern Rifle

Like all others of its ilk, the M24/47 features a stripper clip guide and thumb cutout to facilitate rapid reloads. A cleaning rod resides beneath the barrel, and the three-quarter-length stock is fitted with a heat-guard upper half.

The sights are robust and effective for rapid work up close. Their somewhat coarse nature enables them to function in low light, but they don’t favor accuracy. A good rifleman with excellent vision may milk best-possible groups out of an M24/47, but as one friend pointed out, most M24/47s shoot better than their owner can using the issued sights.

4 of 5 turned out nice October 28, 2020
Reviewer: jason pack from coolidge, TX United States  
when the rifle arrive it was missing the cleaning rod and had a m48 bent bolt. As with all of these rifles lots of cleaning required. The bore looked iffy even after cleaning but after 10 rounds and another cleaning it is mirror clean with great riffling. The wood was in great shape for a milsurp. I had to do a little work on the safety. I am happy with my purchase.

5 of 5 Very Nice Rifle October 9, 2020
Reviewer: Jay from Georgia  
I received my rifle today and was very pleased. The bore is in good shape and should clean up well. The overall condition of the rifle I received is very good, with some cleaning will make a very nice addition to my collection. Would definitely recommend based on my purchase.

5 of 5 Good buy June 11, 2020
Reviewer: J. from TX  
Pleased with the purchase. As is common with these Ethiopian warehouse guns, needed a lot of cleaning, though less than some other's I've bought from this find. The rifle was in fundamentally good, possibly very good condition. Exposed metal had lost all bluing, but everything under the stock and hand guard remained well blued. Importantly, didn't see a spot of rust. Bore cleaned up fairly easily and has strong rifling. Wood is in good condition, with only a few chips missing from the top handguard I can fix with Acraglas. Barrel bands were removed easily. I was surprised at the build quality, not quite at German or Czech levels, but certainly a well made rifle.

Only disappointing thing was that it arrived with an M48 bent bolt, not the straight bolt indicative of an M24/47. I expected a nice shooter that needed a lot of cleaning, and that's what I got, so 5/5.
