What you have there is a M1888/05/38. Basically a M1888 Commission rifle that was updated in 1905 then sold to the Turks. They in turn updated it in 1938 by replacing the barrel. I have one of those myself and they are one of the smoothest operating guns out there. I shoot Romanian surplus out of mine with decent accuracy. They say not to use powerful rounds out if it but I find the gun very strong and should handle it. Don't quote me on that. :D

Nice looking rifle! Lots of history to that one. Many guys use lighter handloads or US commercial rounds in those. Commercial US loads (Winchester, Remington) are ridiculous pricey ($34 a box). The Romanian surplus that one of the guys mentioned is a good lighter load and won't break the bank. It has green laquered steel cases. You can find it at gun shows or buy it by the case on gunbroker.

I have one as well,with the modifications that were done,you don't need enbloc clips with this rifle. They load just like any other mauser. I mention this because I didn't know when I bought mine an bought a few. As stated above,one of the smoothest action I own. I also have shot romanian surplus through mine,it is fairly mild compared to other surplus. the problem is not with the strength of the action,but the ability to vent gasses from a punctured primer or split case.Someday,these turks are gonna get the respect they deserve......Larry

Thinking, of military, rifle modifications.
I, would like some help and info, on the following mauser rifle, I, have, in my collection.
IT, is a mauser-Verguiero(spelling)? It, is a cut down, to a short type rifle and rechambered
to 8 mm cal. The receiver is of the split bridge type. Originaly, this rifle was a long type rifle and
the cal was 6.5mm. My rifle is marked model 1904.
Advanced thanks
Roy

"Great"--- Thats it!! Thanks a million. I, never really, was able to find out much info on this rifle.
I, got one, just to match the split bridge type Mannlicher Schonauer rifles ,I, have in my collection.
Over the years, I, was lucky enough to get a nice set of M/S rifles both a long rifle and a carbine.
Thanks again
Roy
