Are Vz 23 rifles rare?
I recently bought what I thought was an early Vz 24, but after doing some research, I think I have a Vz 23. It has an E-lion-23 acceptance mark, and the three line arched crest reads CS.ZABRODY NA, VYROBU ZBRANI, BRNO. The barrel seems to be about an inch shorter than my other Vz24, and the front sight ramp is cut for a K98 style sight hood. A K98 hood won't fit though. The rifle has a standard Vz24 stock. Is this in fact a Vz 23, and is it worth more than a Vz24 in comparable condition?
