This is a condensed version of this thread http://www.gunco.net/forums/f300/mauser-project-68868/ I'm leaving that one open for discussion of this thread.
All the Mauser talk here lately motivated Me to dig out a project that got side tracked a couple of years ago. This is my 3rd Mauser project which in no way makes me an expert on the subject, but I have picked up a few things along the way.
I had already blueprinted the receiver before the project got shelved. It's a 1937 Czechoslovakian VZ-24 (large ring Mauser)
