Nice guns everyone.

I sold my Mosin M38 & M44, and would like to find another Mosin Carbine.

My BSA Enfield No 4 Mk 1 made in 1944 all numbers matching.




The blue in the pic is a camera artifact.

While I know this is the rifle forum I just had to add another milsurp of mine.
A .455 Enfield Mk VI made in 1926. It has been shaved to accept .45 ACP and Auto Rim, which I load to Webley pressures using .454 lead slugs

what makes them awesome is their mine and therefore I love them.

1). A 1893 Turk with cutoff box and stright stock. The Turkish 1893 was the first and only Mauser rifle ever to be built with a magazine cuttoff. This example still retains the Cuttoff box but unfortunaly the rest of the cuttoff mechinism has been removed long ago.














2). 1893 Turkish Mauser. This Example was upgraded in 1938 by removing the magazine cuttoff box and having the stock replaced with a more modern pattern piece of furniture.









3). 1903/30 These rifles started out life as 1903 pattern Mauser built in Germany on Contract for Turkey. The 1903 patern is am intermediate action meaning its receiver and bolt are shorter in length in compairison to ones of a K98. when the Turks began upgrading these rifles in 1930 they had to cut a notch in the front ring of the receiver so that the action could accept the new 8MM cartridge. many of these rifles have tear drop shapped bolt handles.

4). Turkish short rifle. This Model of Turk Mauser should not be refered to a "Carbine" but insted should be called a "Short Rifle" because that is exactly what it is. This example started off life as a German K98az that was converted in 1938 to Turkish standards. the bolt pictured in the Rifle is not correct, the rifle should have a bent bolt.







5). This is a German Gew 98 that was converted to a Turkish standards in 1937.
The Turkish Republic updated their old rifles to a common configuration commonly know, here in the US, as the Model of 1938 While actually starting the conversions in 1933 any rifle converted to this standard is commonly called Model 38.

Gew 98 converted M38s can be easily identified a small hole through the front of the trigger guard that was originally used for a sling swivel. also Gew98 convert rifles tend to have caputure screws along with the standard action screws.






The Turkish Crest has been stamped on very strong, but if you look close you can still see a little of the German crest that was not completly scrubed off.




6). Here is an ATF Turk. This example started out as a Gew 98 that was converted to Turk standards in 1954. These rifles were the last batch of Gew 98 to be converted to Turkish standards.
