    Ok took my Turk Mauser out to the range..got it from SOG along with 4 bandolers of ammo ($4 ber 70). Put bullet in chamber pulled triger and NO BOOM....checked round dent in primer...tried 10 rounds none went boom. The Fireing pin appears to be hitting the primer and puts a small dent...clearly a dent but not the deepest Ive seen...In any case not sure if its the ammo or fireing pin. Can the fireing pin be adjusted? Has anyone had any problems with some of the ammo? Any suggestions?
    Thanks.:confused:

    I don't know but my first point would be to check another lot of ammo maybe a trip to wally world for a box of cheap remington might be worth it

    You might also check firing pin protrusion. I believe that it should be between .55 and .65. If less, try tearing down the bolt and removing firing pin. Then rolling the firing pin 180 degrees before reinstalling it. You may have to replace the pin. I seen them advertised for $2 - $24 depending on what you want (standard pull weight or custom/heavier weight).

    1st suspicion would be ammo, next take bolt apart and make sure theres no cosmoline inside it, if the firing pin also looks in good shape try replacing the firing pin spring. good luck

    turk no go boom

    i agree with lefty check for cosmoline in the body body. could be gumed up to the point it softens the pin fall.
    the two i've got had cosmoline everywhereand lots of it!

    Can you adjust the fireing pin like on Mosans?
    Thak you all for you'r help..I plan to go back out in two weeks....work and schedule conflicts delay the retesting...Ill let you all know if it works.

    Sounds like the striker spring is bad. I replaced mine with a Wolff spring, and can shoot the $4/bandolier ammo all day long. Mine did what yours is doing, only leaving a slight print on the primer. The new spring will smack the hell out of the primers, and they WILL go BOOM!! HTH

    Cant hurt...I'll look them up...stupid question...I use mil surplus ammo...so just ask for 8mm mauser...what is the actual calaber..Like Mosans are 7.63x54R.

    Thanks

    Wolf Springs?

    Calle Wolf Springs..and they did not have Trukish Specific parts...and could not cross reffrence...
    Ok what is the fireing pin spring (striker spring) part # or what Mauser would I order it for...I have the plain old $40 Turk from SOG...Man I think Im going to stick with Mosans...parts be parts for them..not so difacult.

    Technically, these Mausers are in 7.92X57JS. The "JS" breaks down to "I" for Infantriegewehr (this got b****dised to a J later) and "S" for the Spitzer bullet (.323 diameter bullet replaced the earlier .318 diameter round-nose bullet). We Yanks shortened it all to "8mm Mauser"after the Great War.
    To the Finns, our 7.62X54R's are "7.62X53R". Interesting how designations depend on where you are.

    I have several Turks , a couple of which I have never cleaned up , much less fired .

    I use solvent to clean the metal , inside and out , including the inside of the bolt .

    Use blue spray can of Easy-Off & water fro the wood , followed by 2 week dry , then boiled linseed oil on the wood .

    Of those I have cleaned and shot , they all went bang . I recommend the slip on rubber recoil pad , as sold by Wal-Mart , especially with the hot Turk Ammo . :)

    Actually the recoil of the Turk long rifle is sharper than .45-70 , mabe a little more than the MN , but the Turk ammo is HOT . Recoil is even more in a lighter rifle , like a K-98 .

    I have 3 .45-70's , but I mostly shoot the Marlin .45-70 . I do not have a recoil pad on the TD Springfield ( HEAVY ) , but I do on the Marlin & the Ruger #3 . I am just a wimp . :)

    Do you reload for the .45-70 ? PM me , I like to talk about this caliber . :)

    no go boom

    I'm satisfied this isn't your problem, but thought I'd mention it.
    Are you loading the shells into the mag and then trying to fire them. Or putting one in the chamber and then shutting the bolt?
    The latter way, the ejector is between the firing pin and the shell and probably won't hit it hard enough to fire. Pretty hard to get bolt to lock down this way, but I'd tried this when I first got it and didn't know what I was doing.

    hey bob,i have had some ignition problems w/turk ammo(what year is it-just curious) but only a few.also case splitting is fairly common.as for the kick,i can't say on the turks.i do know that my vz-24 will knock the holy hell out of ya w/turk ammo and i'm used to shooting an m-44,so just be prepared.as a result of this gun i butchered a nerf football,bought a piece of leather and some lacing,and built a strap on recoil pad.

    I installed the spring...and when Loaded from the magazine..before the new spring would not go boom..even when recocked seveal times...with new spring I ran into the problem..loading a primer only case 1 at a time the fist went click..recocked and got pop...so I think it are fixed.....dang old boss keeps makeing me work so keep missing chances to go to the range..hopfully by friday I can go...Will get a bang or a boom...even if I have to smack each round with a hammer :)...Will let you know...course if I change my handle to 2 finger doglips..then as we say near the cape..Huston we have a problem:)
