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
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.jpattersonnh said: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??
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.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.
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.Are they a Turkish Mauser or a Mauser that is a "Turkey"??
It will take a little getting use to if you don't shoot surplus. Well worth the trip.I just love how rugged they look and the price! Plus ammo is cheap if you can find it
Sure it is an open forum. That is why I think your being an @ss. I also believe that you are cheap and crude and someone that has not read your dribble may find your pompus remarks acceptable. I own some wonderful Mausers that are '94, '96, '98 actions. The Turk is still a VG rifle, maybe not quite as refined as others, but still a great platform.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.
Your a smart man. That rifle will last the rest of your life if you take care of it.Yeah it'll be my first Mauser. But every gun I have is a mil surp, I absolutely love them. I love surplus ammo too, I personally choose it over commercial any day.
I've found found cheaper ones online but this one is local and has ammo, by the time I pay shipping and FFL then there's a small differance.dteed4094 said:I bought a 93/30 about 15 months ago. The bore looks fairly nice and the metal on the outside is about 70% but judging by the furniture it has more than served its time in the field. It's not the best looking mauser by any stretch of the imagination but I'm sure it was beautiul to those that carried it. Milsurps have a beauty of their own and were built or function and durability. It isn't a tack driver but I wouldn't hesitate to take a shot at a deer and still feel ethical about it. I paid $140 for it and 100 rounds of Turk ammo in bandoleers. If you like it and the bore is decent, buy it. The price is a little high but what isn't right now. They sell for $150-$175 in my area.
