    Made in Czechoslovakia by CZ Brno in 1923 for the Turkish military. Caliber 8x57 Mauser. This one has been rebuilt by the Turks and is re-stocked in Turkish walnut and a beech handguard (that I stained with some reddish crap). The Turk stocks are rather roughly made way below standard German quality.

    These rifles are no longer very common on the milsurp market because the Czech actions are of a very high quality both in metallurgy and manufacturing quality.

    What are the medallions found in the stock of many mil-surp mausers?

    This particular rifle has the bolt take-down in the stock. Its to allow compression of the mainspring to get the bolt apart. Some rifles do have "discs" or other marking discs for unit designation. Some later Mausers used the stock lug cross bolt and simply had a recess for the firing pin tip.
