Turkish Mauser
 
I've been seeing Turkish Mausers for $150-$190 online and was wondering if they're worth the money. Does anyone have one of these? There's one in my area for $230 with 80 rounds of ammo. Thanks

They are heavy rifles if '98's. Now a Turkish Mauser is very vague. Could be a '93, '95, or '98 action. What action is it??

I'm not quite sure, most don't specify. But I think the one in my area is a 1932, he didn't say what model.

Most have been rode hard, put up wet. I found one with a bore that had not yet turned into sewer pipe. Turk ammo is pretty hot. Paid under $100 for mine about 5 yrs ago. Shoots OK as a military arm- is not a target rifle. Big and rather heavy- which, with the recoil, can be a blessing.

What is recoil?? I love Turk ammo!! Have a bunch of Ss that is pretty hot. Not Turk, 2700fps. For a 196gr that is fast. Germany used a double based powder. It is easier shooting then the Turk 1949.

Are they a Turkish Mauser or a Mauser that is a "Turkey"??:confused:

I just love how rugged they look and the price! Plus ammo is cheap if you can find it

Depends on the action. Wise guy. I sold a '95 action that had the most incredable tiger strip stock. Great shooter in perfect condition. I hooked a friend up w/ a 1938 '98 action and a case (1600) rounds of ammo for $300.00. He loves the rifle although he is only 5'6". It was made for him. Older '93, '95 actions are German made. Some '98 actions are also. Your Winchester 70's are the last in line. Actually Norway still fields Sniper rifles built on '98 actions. Don't be an @ss on something you have no clue about.

It will take a little getting use to if you don't shoot surplus. Well worth the trip.
You will hear people slam surplus rifles all day long. The difference is we are rifleman. We can shoot anything well. They can't. If you take the trip, you will be better all around.

Is this still an open forum? If so I think they are on the low end of the Milsrp line of rifles. They are cheap crude Mausers. For some one who has never owned a nice Mdl. 98 they would be acceptable. :)
