This is a Yugo Mauser Model M24/47 bolt-action rifle in 7.92mm. Serial number- N2912. At core basically, a Mauser K98k built in Slavic regions, the M24/47 is a post-World War II update of the earlier M24. It is a Mauser 98 knockoff if you will, that was manufactured at the Kragujevac Arsenal in the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes (later Yugoslavia and now Serbia) beginning in 1924. 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.
