I just received my latest copy of Brownell's Gunsmith newsletter and they have included some info on the Turkish Mausers that are on the market now. Go to the link and read.

Good info. I think it safe to assume, that nothing that has ever been in the Turkish inventory can be assumed to be "standard". ;)

Very interesting reading. That is the first time I've seen anybody post some actual measurements or deminsions in critical areas. What they don't say is that many of these different variations can be identified before removing the barrel. ATF plus date are reworked standard 98 actions and have the front of the receiver bored out to accept the upper handguard. This removes a thread or two and can be unsafe if rebarreled. the 1903 actions are easily identified as well as the czech 9822's. The Czech is a good action, standard Gew98 made to Czech standards. As far as the odd barrel thread, I have heard of others that had trouble getting barrels to fit (i can't remember if the barrels were to loose or too tight). I wonder how prevalent this condition is and if it can be corrected by chasing the threads in the receiver or on the barrel. At any rate for the price they sure are cheap guns to work on or practice with. HTH
