Our Assessment: This is a Weimar Republic Mauser that somehow ended up in Turkey. Actually it ended up here in the U.S. but we know the rifle was made in Germany in 1916 and we know there is Turkish writing and the word “Turkey” stamped on the receiver. However there is no Turkish crest. In any case this is a WWI era solid as a rock Mauser. Add this oddball to your collection, and take it out shooting.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred in California.
