Rifles for sale, '03, M1917, and VZ-24 Mauser

My gun safe is over flowing and I need to clear some stuff out!!!!

1) Remington 03-A3 built on a very nicely restored drill receiver. Some were horribly welded, some just a light touch. This is a nice one. Barrel is a "new old stock" Remington two groove, dated 9-43. All mint condition parkerized parts. I have approximately $600 in this build and I am just looking to get my money out of it. It sits in a very nice semi-grip stock with a RA-P cartouche and a JF cartouche. This should be an excellent shooter. (I haven't even shot it yet).




2) US M1917 Remington with a new Criterion barrel. I bought the rifle some time ago, complete less wood. I had a beautiful striped walnut stock to set it in. The pics don't do this stock justice. It is stunning to see in person. Now for the bad part. The stock had the butt shortened by 1/2" but I recut the butt and fitted the butt plate and it is nicely done and you would never really notice it if I didn't telll you. Also, the action is a bit loose and needs a little bedding to fit tightly, probably only the trigger group needs to be done. Minor work if you plan on shooting with this stock. I built it up as a shooter with a new barrel as the old barrel was invery nice shape but was counter-bored about an inch or so. I have around $650 in this rifle and would just like to recover my investment.






3)Czech VZ-24 8mm rifle. I bought this from hammonje a while ago. Butter smooth action, nice bore. Excellent wood and metal finish. I paid $325 for it and would just like to get my money back from what I have in it. I've never fired it. You will be hard pressed to find a nicer '98 Mauser for this price.

If you look at the pic of the bolt handle,you can see the number engraved on the top of the bolt handle, and it does match the receiver. I don't know if that is original arsenal engraving or not. I'm not much of a Mauser expert.....

This particular VZ-24 is a Czech made, Romanian contract WWII Russian Capture. Most likely captured in the southern portion of the USSR during WWII from Romanian troops. Maybe even at Stalingrad. Who knows???? The condition of this particular VZ-24 is excellent. They are sought out for sporter converions due to their butter smooth action. Czechs make high-quality items and this rifle is no exception. This rifle was the most accurate 8mm Mauser I have shot.

IIRC the stock and receiver are a match and so was the rest of the rifle.

If a purchaser will let me know...I have some Romanian 8mm Light Ball that shot amazing from this rifle. Lighter recoil. I'll send you 100 rounds on my dime. 20 rounds/package in stripper clips.

Thanks Jason. That 03A3 was taunting me, and my wife will kill me if I buy another before I'm done investing in my current projects.

Few months ago bought a bando of what was advertised as "7mm Mauser" at a gun show, only to realize upon returning home that it was actually 8mm Mauser. (Have I ever mentioned how much I love gun shows?)

Anyway, didn't have any rifle in that caliber, so obviously I had to sooner or later pick one up. This one looks nice.
