Ok, so I go to the gun store for the first time in like a month or two. I figure that with a absence of that magnitude there's got to be something fun and exciting.

I bring $100.

I payed $50 for this. Tis' a Turkish Mauser, I don't know what the date is, but the soldier carved his name into the stock. The bolt is pitted, and much rougher to operate than my Polish Mauser. The bore is pitted quite a bit, but certainly not un-shootable. The bore cleaned up really well though, its not nearly as bad as it looked at the gun store.

The safety won't turn all the way to the right though.
I'm going to rig something up to shoot it remotely just to be safe..... :lol:

I don't really know much about guns, but they're cool as hell. You have a piece of history there, my friend. Or a beat up cheap gun.

Nifty.


Especially on a guitar forum....
So good to see you once again.
I thought that you were hiding.
And you thought that I had run away.
Chasing the tail of dogma.
I opened my eye and there we were .

Thats a pretty nice rifle, it looks like it could be from the 1930s of 40s. It would look really nice if you fully restored it and polished everything.

Psh, shame that in England that would probs go for like £500 or more, and then ontop of that all the licencing fees.

If I understand correctly, the rifle should have been made between 1948 and 1965. I'm just not sure what the date is exactly, because I simply can't read the foreign characters on the receiver.

As for re-finishing it, I like em' old looking.

on the second pic it looked like some one tried to carve a swastika into it after the name, thats a cool gun i guess im not really in to them but you bought a peice of history!

Thanks.

The charactors after the name look like a Y and a 3. The flash just screws with the picture, I'll take much better ones tomorrow.

sweet rifle, i'm not much of a gun guy, but those are cool looking.

plus once the guy shoots one of those he has to pull the bolt again so i can hit him for shotting at me

If I'm not mistaken, it looks like it says 1948 on the reciever.

A friend of mine has a '45 Mauser in really nice condition, I think it's even German. But damn, those things are seriously nice, good find if you can get it working well.

Wow, I've been here for a while.

The receiver says M48, I still haven't determined the year.

Straight pulls are cool, I have a K-31 and Styer M95 that utilize the design.
