A guy I work with brought me this rifle and asked me to get some information on it. From what I can tell it is a brazillian rifle, looks to be a mauser of sorts.......

I need to know what origin it is, date, caliber, and value if you can.

Thanks,
Josh












Thanks again.

Fabrica de Itajuba in Brazil converted original 7mm DWM Model 1908 Long Rifles to a short rifle in .30/06, starting with the 08/34-.30 ( a conversion of a conversion --om 7mm Long Rifle to 7mm Short Rifle to .30 Sort Rifle) and completed with the Mqe 954- .30 ( a direct conversion from M1908 Rifle to the .30/06 version.

About $200 would be fair depending on bore condition. If its really good and all numbers match and the wood is VG+ about $400(high side)..........yellow is yours as far as I can tell. Not real common if the latter, but not real rare either......nice gun.

So it should chamber .30/06? If I am reading your response correctly?

Thanks,
Josh

The .30 means 30/06, i would try that first. If not its 7mm Mauser....

According to Ludwig Olsen's book "Mauser Bolt Rifles" the Model 1908/34 was the designation for
CZ made model 24 short rifles in 7mm. Many of whcih were later converted to .30-06 and were then marked "Fabrica De Itajuba-Brasil.

My Mauser is a Model 1908/34 in 7mm that was not converted and still has the CZ Brno markings in the same spot where yours has the "Fabrica markings."

Pictures are not detaile enough to tell but if you have a sling thingy in the pistol grip right about where your lip is when shouldering then it is definately a Model 24 which is most time called a Vz24.

"Vz" is Czech abbreviation for "Vzor", meaning 'Model'.
