Yugo 1924 CK humped

Interesting observations POOT said:
It's probably easier to break down what's right and wrong about it than to speculate just how it got that way. Here goes-

The Good:
-The barreled action looks correct and the markings are legitimate.
-The trigger guard and floor plate are both good, and the numbering on them is original.
-The bolt HANDLE appears correct, but we really need to see it from the back, and the underside of the bolt ball.
-The rear sight appears correct (200-1,000 meters), but we'd need a close up shot to be certain.

The Bad:
-Entirely wrong rear barrel band. The one it has belongs on Type I and Type II Cavalry Carbines.
-Following on from that, the original, real CK carbines have an integrated barrel band (just one) that incorporates the model-specific bayonet lug and sling swivel. This one very obviously lacks this.
-The bolt components aside from the handle would not have been numbered at all. On this one, the safety lever appears to be from a K98k rifle, and it doesn't even match.
-The barrel bands would not have been numbered at all.
-The rear trigger guard screw is incorrect, it's from a Czech Mauser. It's also been stamped (not done on real/original CK carbines) with modern numbers.
-The rest of the numbers on this are fake, and applied post-war, most likely by someone trying to pass this off as the real deal. The stock numbers are horrendously bad, and were clearly applied using modern stamps. Look at the photo showing the '2020' numbers stamped into the stock. They were clearly stamped into something older which someone tried to obscure.

Bottom line, this thing is a dog, and a very deliberate attempt to render a CK carbine for the unwary.
Just in case the original photos disappear, I am showing photo shots here:

To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.

I found the old post these are intact but stocks were refinished:
