Hello, I haven't been on for a while but I have a few questions about a Mauser i just picked up.

I have been trying to identify this Mauser, the shop I bought it says it is a 7 mm Turkish model but there are very few identification Mark's on it.

Thank you in advance for anyone that may be able to tell me about this rifle 20191130_153204.jpg

With the side mount sling and turned down bolt handle...I would guess this is a Model 38 Short Rifle...these as far as I know came in 8mm not 7mm...

Thanks, I have a lot of digging to do on this. When I got home and did some quick research I began to feel as if they may not k ow what they sold me.

I'm still happy, I just want to figure out what it is

If it is indeed a Model 38 Short Rifle...
These were altered rifles , by the Turks in the 1930's from rifles already issued...they were shortened and had the bolt turned down and new side mount slings...( All military armory work )
These were made from the 1903 Turkish Mauser , the G.98 and Czech Model 98/22 rifles....

That would be awesome, I live in Oak Harbor and you have likely had the fortune/misfortune of teaching my kids
Well if they go to Oak Harbor Elementary School ....then I probably run in to them from time to time.
I , if one can believe it or not , am the Behavior Specialist there...:D

In any case...I have some books on Mauser Rifles and if nothing else I can add to the confusion....:eek: :D

I would be happy to meet with you, we may not figure it out but the worst that could happen is two old guys talking old guns. I will message my number to you.

Anytime this week after work or whenever is convenient for you.
