Re: M24/47 questions and value
I haven't seen that many by me, but it IS imported, so I guess there are a bunch floating around. I was told that aside from the finish on the stock, the gun was in pretty good shape. I know that the standard model had a straight bolt but mine does not. I wanted to see if anyone could verify if the bolt on mine was an original bent one or if bubba got to screwing around with it.
Also, I'm not sure if it's true, but I heard that there are some Russian capture versions of this with a plumb colored bolt. Cabela's had one with a plumb bolt for about $250 a few weeks ago, with visible cosmoline in the crevaces.
