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.

Turkish Forestry Carbine

#1 Post by Kevinofborg » Fri Jun 16, 2017 10:33 pm

Re-post of my 4/30/2014 post:

Went to pick up my Turkish Forestry Carbine yesterday and here are the details of it:

Started life as a MLE 1907 (not a 1907-15) which is the first 1907 I have seen converted. Manufacturer was Chatellerault.
Turkish Serial Number on receiver and bolt is 3113.
Interesting feature of this rifle is that the rear sight has no range markings on the top (Ground?) The bottom of the sight has markings.

So a question on those sights,.. I have seen several sights that have numbers on the upper side and the bottom side of the sight.. Why is that???

Not sure f there is a good answer for this but this is one of the replies from the original post by burkefj on 5/1/14:

I don't know if all the berthier sights were marked on the top, the base was marked on the side for elevation for the short range, but on these since they added a handguard, that was covered up, I assumed they added the markings on the sight ladder top when they did that. Could be wrong. I did find a berthier rear sight for sale that did not have markings on the top either. I know my gras did not, and neither does my 1874-M80-M14 which has the berthier barrel and sight...no markings.

OK I did not ask that well... :( Never should ask a general question about Firearms with out photos...
In this case with the Berthier sights the markings on the back side of the sights are for additional long range shooting..
So here is an example of a m95/24 it has markings on the front & back of the sight.. And I do not understand the use for the markings on the back of the sight...

By the way I should have said that I love the lack of markings on that sight.. Some one at the Turkish factory must have been asleep at the grinder.. That is kinda neat no one caught that...
