I thought reading about Turkish Mausers a few years ago that between candyman and other members on here I would never get one without going online cause I never saw one locally. Put that idea on the back burner for time being, as I had gotten bitten by the black rifle disease.

The other week I lucked out and found my first Turk Mauser with roughly 150+ rounds for $150. Haven't had much chance to even start doing research on this one before I lucked into a second one. Had posted an AR I had built online and listed in the trade section I was interested in military surplus rifles. Got a message from a guy today who offered up another Turk Mauser in trade plus some ammo and a good amount of cash.

From my quick research I think this is an 88/05/1938, but correct me if I'm wrong. Marked with importation mark on end of the barrel as well as M38 German 8mm.

I think I'm addicted to Turks, but I'm enjoying it and learning alot. Plus, I like their German and Turk history mixed togeher.

Alot of interesting markings on this rifle, love the imperial German markings.

You can definitely tell in on picture the markings were scrubbed off and then gone back over.

Any information you can offer up please do, I've been out the game and slowly reading up.

Want to find a Turk Gew 88 next
