A Pahlavi crown, lion and sun crest appears near the feeding ring, as an inscription in Persian (in Nasta’liq script) on the side of its magazine giving the model and the factory name. This is a Persian Czech Model 30 Carbine, chambered in the 7.92 x 57mm (8mm cartridge) and has an unusual ring on the left side of the forestock by the sling on the rear barrel band. The carbine is shorter than the short rifle version of the VZ24. This firearm is in Very Good to Excellent condition and would be desirable for both the Mauser collector and shooter/builder.
