mauser rifle threads
G'Morning, I acquired a Czech VZ-24 minus the receiver and thought that I would use a 1938 FNC receiver that I had. Both 8mm, the barrels are the same length, steps, and the threads appear to be the same. (They lay in each other.)The Czech barrel seems to thread bind a little more than 1 turn into the FN receiver, while the wore out FN barrel screws in all but about 3/4 turn by hand. The FN barrel threads appear to have been filed into a bit of an acme thread and there are four home butchered self tapping notches filed 90 degrees apart into them (the threads). It seems too loose in its threads till it bottoms. FN receiver and barrel are/were number matched. The reciever threads appear undamaged. The VZ barrel is stamped VZ24 8mm CZECHO, CAI ST ALB VT., K2, B4, 6108, an inverted V and what looks like a lion stamp. The threads on it appear to be unmolested, it's rifling is good and it's reasonably blue-black. I still have to round up the proper tightening tools, but feel like I may be at a "a little knowledge is dangerous" stage. What am I missing? Thank you.
