I have the opurtunity to pick up a Turkish 1903 for $100.00 out the door ( $70.00 before tax and $25.00 fee). It has lots of cosmoline on the bolt and reciever and the bore has some rifling left but overall looks good. The bore does not look pitted. The stock looks very dark but does not appear to be beat up. I know nothing about Mausers ( I have the Mosinitis ) but want to get more of a variety of classic arms. The markings I wrote down are a star over a cresent moon, A.S.F.A, ANKARA, 1933 with S/N 4861. I would like to do the bullet in the end of the barrel test but am sure what caliber and neither does the gun store. I am looking for some advice from you Mauser guys before I join your ranks.
