Anybody here have any BRNO firearms which were the forerunners of the CZ operation? I have one old #1 22 rimfire but wouldn't hesitate to pick up others if the price is right.

Yep. I have a ZKK602 that originally came from the factory in 300WM. I am in the process of overhauling it and upgrading it to 338 Edge.

How old a firearm are you all talking? When were the BRNO's in production?

I believe BRNO came into being about 1918, i'm not sure what year it was renamed CZ. The BRNO i have was made in 1950, a lot were made for training rifles before WW2.

I have two, a vz 24 Mauser from '36, actually a CZ made in the BRNO factory, and a 451ZOM straight pull .22LR, about the last model gun made before they went fully CZ, I think.

I'd buy any BRNO I saw, if the price were normal or less.

Here's the crest off the vz24

The vz24 are a well built rifle, i have an action sitting waiting for an inspiration. I haven't had the chance to handle the 451ZOM though.

From what I read, the 451 was a hit or miss gun, as they finished up the BRNO era, some of them seem to be just slapped together from parts to be pushed out the door, and don't run well, or aren't very accurate.

Mine is dead nuts accurate, and runs fine.
