Many of these rifles were taken during the war by the Russians, who had them refurbished
for use primarily by Eastern Bloc countries. Manufactured in 1944 in German-occupied
Czechoslovakia, Waffenwerke Brunn AG is the name the Germans gave the small arms
factory at Bystrica, Czechoslovakia, located in the former Austro-Hungarian territory of
Slovakia. Prior to German occupation, the factory produced VZ-24 rifles for export and the
Czech military. This gun is classified as a Curio & Relic, and must ship to either an FFL or
holder of a Curio & Relic license.
