That's a nice rifle. I have a K. Kale that's missing that screw. I'm not sure where to get one or if I should just find something that works.

You will never find that screw, that is because it is not a screw. It's a nail with the head made to look like a screw.

"You will never find that screw, that is because it is not a screw. It's a nail with the head made to look like a screw."
-My Turked Gew98 has the same cross retainer on the rear band. Dunno if that means I have a later stock that got replaced at some point, or if the armorer just grabbed a stock that fit during a rebuild/update, or whether the Turks just used "whatever worked?"
Oh, I fussed with my photobucket, and the old pics are gone... so, because this is a picture thread, and I like sharing/spreading enthusiasm... here it is after I cleaned the wood a little:
Image

It is dated 1947, but started life as a 1917 Waffenfabrik Oberndorf Mauser. The receiver is not 100 sanitized. Was a Gew98 (still partially visible as well), and has almost all imperial marked metal parts, save for one trigger guard screw, and of course the metal bits on the stock. Shoots rather nice at 100.

The odd thing about the OP's rifle is its a M1903 with a Intermediate length action..Those stocks I would think would be inletted for the Intermediate action not the full size K.Kale ..I cant remember seeing an intermediuate length receiver stock without the Rear band retaining spring..So..wouldnt the OP's stock be a later Turk made Replacvement?

I'm assuming since I've never actually measured one of my 03s against a full length..Candyman I'm sure would know with his stock repair exp.

With the Turks, anything is possible. :lol: ++

Interestingly, my pin actually is a screw (bolt) and is threaded for about half an inch. Never say never when it comes to Turks.

I think the standard thing about the Turkish rifle standards is that they were not always standard.
I started this thread back in Sept. of 09 for two reasons. One was to give members a place to post pic's of their Turks without having to start a thread, and the other was so that we could get a better look at many rifles in one place.
I think that this thread has helped many of us when it comes to Turkish rifles.

Many many types of Turk Mausers and Many many types of little Diffs in a WWII German Mauser..

We collect a whole lot of Refurbed or M38 type Turks at SRF..1) because they are very affordable(sometimes/often I'm broke)..and 2) because they are available now..Finding an all correct original condition vintage Turk..dang their rare..just not many to be had at any price..Most of us love to find some missed aspect that the armorer left..just so we can look and point..maybe share a bit so others will/can see.

Boiled down:

How many are left and just how original is it..Goes for any type Milsurp..How many and Condition,condition,condition....Original Condition

For every "Rare" rifle you find , their will be 10++ you see that someone sanded or "Fixed" in some way..Sometimes Great Bargains, but always good placeholders..Trade up as you can..No one has them all.. or all the best at one time.

There are Rare Turks and Rare German Rifles..Have both if you can .

I picked up 4 more Turks this year.
2, 1903s, a 1893 and a K.Kale. With all my others I don't think I could get them all in one pic.
I have had more fun collecting Turks then any other type of surplus rifles.
