There are some heavy gouges on the left side above the trigger, and on the bottom of the stock at the forend. There are numerous dings, mars, and scratches. There is some sort of damage on the bottom of the buttstock behind the sling swivel, the wood is dark brown and rough . The LOP measures approx. 13 ¼”. The stocks rate in about poor overall condition.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is gray and the rifling is medium deep. There is light erosion in the grooves. This may improve with some elbow grease.

Overall Condition: This gun retains about 10% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows thinning, wear and pinprick erosion. The barrel shows thinning and some roughness on the top along with some minor surface erosion. The receiver shows thinning and on the right side receiver ring and pinprick erosion. There is more light erosion scattered around the bolt and back of the receiver. The trigger guard and floor plate show much surface rust. The sling swivels show rust as well. The Screw heads are in good serviceable condition with most showing just minor use and little disfiguration. The markings are clear. Overall, this gun rates in about fair condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We did not fire this gun..

Our Assessment: This is one of the early guns produced by Turkey after the war. This model is closely related to the German K98. This is a seldom encountered Mauser and was used by Turkey when becoming a member of Nato. This gun should have good appeal for the Mauser collector. Take this gun out and shoot it.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This gun can be transferred in California, and is C&R eligible.
