Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

1893 Model Turk???
I am assuming that it has been converted to 8mm.

The button on the stock is a later addition

Those 93 Turks are a fav of mine--only downturn is I'm afraid to use Turk ammo--has a rep for being "hot".
Since I don't reload, limits me to searching gun shows for bargain-priced old boxes of US commercial 8mm. Since I did
not have a 93 when the Romanian ammo was plentiful/cheap, I did not buy any--

Of course, you must do what you feel comfortable.. But I would have no issues using Turk ammo in any Bolt action 8mm rifle.. I have shot 1000s of Turk rounds.. No issues..

Because of age one needs to check the necks of Turk rounds to make sure there is no cracking, I have come across a few rounds over the years with cracked necks..

The primers can be hard, you may need a new firing pin spring.

And the rounds are corrosive so you need to clean as corrosive.

I also do not reload, and I have found that I need a several different surplus rounds on hand when testing a "New" rifle because some rounds shot better in certain rifles than others.
