Now I know that a bunch of ya'll have a Turk or two sitting around the house, but the Turk section has been a little quiet these past few months.
Your Turk is worth more then a run of the mill Mosin and there are fewer Turks out there then the Mosins.
So lets wake up, dig out the Turks and post some pic's.
We want to see them all, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Don't be shy now.
I'll be taking some new pic's this weekend to post.

I'l be getting a new M1893 Turk in a couple of weeks and will post then.

I did go to the range today with my M1903/38, refurbed in 1938,

I was using handloads with 3031 powder and 175 gr. boattail bullets, and got great accuracy.

To paraphrase the Box O'Truth website, it's fun to shoot Turks! :D
