Took pictures this afternoon! I'm woefully under-educated on Turkish rifles, but one popped up and I took the bait and grabbed it.

From what I can tell, anything with a serial number matches the rifle. Bolt, Rear sights, Receiver, and barrel.

Looks like it was originally German made, but the markings are faded. Sadly they plastered the import serial over where the original date code would of been. The import mark under the rear sight states it was imported by CAI and "Germany 1893 8MM" :think:

Clearly reworked into the K98 spec. Thumb hole cut, Notched receiver for spitzer bullets, pistol grip stock, and the disassembly disc. Love Long rifles, so it was a great fit for me, and i figure a strong start on turkish rifles.

Turkaline slathered on everything. I wasn't expecting to find a turk rifle with enough cosmo to rival a mosin. Certainly not complaining, It looks nearly brand new on the inside :dance:

I'm assuming this slot is for the magazine cutoff, but it doesn't look like it was ground off from the massive shelf I've seen those converts have. They must of did a wonderful refinishing and milling job, I'll have a better idea once the cosmo is toast.

Another member gave me a wonderful turk sling to put on it. I'll still make a few repros once i get the proper leather, but this one was perfeclty turked and usable after some reconditioning.

:o I can not believe they put that new serial number on the receiver on such a nice rifle. Insane, I guess I am lucky I got mine prior to that marking of a receiver . Man, I would burnish it somewhat flat and brown it up with browning solution so its not so visible. Truely a nice rifle, L love those Turk Mausers with sand flee writing on the side.

I took better pictures after a clean. They're not all shadow now atleast.

The stock clearly has cosmo and oil soaked into it petty deeply. Its not quiet spring yet here, so it'll have to wait for a good soaking and car trip in a black bag...

Slightly worried about the firing pin. Its looking awfully shallow, might be enough to hit the primers, but its certainly on its way out.

A nice-looking rifle and very nice that it matches. I like the bayonet as well.

A really nice set up you've got there-the sling and bayonet really make a super package. The matching bolt is icing on the cake. :thumb:

Nice rifle. I've not seen a original Turk in a long time. They used to be everywhere.
