Last week in kdwright5407's post NEW TURK, we got a little off topic about Turkish cleaning rods.
viewtopic.php?f=34&t=140341

So, I thought I would start a post to address the different cleaning rod tips.
When it comes to Turkish Mausers, you will find that there are many types of tips on the cleaning rods. Some are nice some crude and some are just ugly. Some are steel and some are made of brass.
Here aer some that are on few of my rifles.

So here are some of mine . Most of my Turk Mausers have rods similar to my Turked 98/22 (First photo) but there is also this odd ball turked 98/22( second photo)

Image
both of these 2 above photos are from examples of Turked Czech 98/22 mausers

My 1893 Turk Mauser has a brass tip.
Image

Then I have an odd ball 1943 ASFA Turk Mauser in a Swedish Mauser stock with rack # 22???? , but all Turk hardware except the butt plate and cleaning rod. 3 lower photos:

My ATF 1954 rod tip is below

Those bi metal cleaning rods are works of art in themselves, I'm trying to get a co worker into the world of milsurps and the old word quality that went into quite a few of them.I'm looking at an Argentine mauser as I type this (brass and steel cleaning rod as well) He's fairly new to guns,but now shoots in pistol matches and reloads.Its odd,but untill now I never gave the cleaning rods on my milsurps a second thought ( as long as they were there and correct)...... Rome wasn't built in a day....Me

It's the 2nd pic in my original post. This is a rod I made. I had my neighbor make the tip and I use some 1/4 brass stock for the rod.

:naughty: And here is a real Turk rod :lol: :lol: :lol: just like Candyman's , his is so good I thought it was real :doh: :doh: :shifty: :shhh:

out of a 1893 turk , a brass rod & brass tip and I also have a brass tip with a steel rod. Both Turkish. (Edit) I looked closer at this rod and it has a brass head, not steel. I pulled some off other 1893s and these are shown in the next post. These are steel heads on a brass rod. :violin:

She's seen some use! perhaps this is why the blueing on most Turks are worn,but 99% have pretty good bores. This rod was used. For all we know,there is someone out there that should send this guy an Xmas card for keeping the bore of this rifle in pristine condition. I,d rather have a worn out cleaning rod than a worn out barrel. This is one to add to the "Turk cleaning rod stickie".....Larr

Two more beat brass rods with steel heads; well used (anyone have a new condition, original brass rod):

Then two more steel rods and the heads vary in shape and design:

I'll have to pull the 10 rifles out of my crate to see what cleaning rods they have.

This is my favorite surplus board. I mean, come on: as of today nearly a thousand reads on a thread about Turkish Mauser cleaning rods. Thanks folks, for rocking! Don't quit!

I guess I should add this and indicate most 98 style( fit the Turkish Model 1893 1903 and M38) Turk rods measure 27.5 inches give or take a quarter of an inch. Treads are not a normal metric die size: the pitch is different????? :confusion-shrug: :confusion-shrug: :confusion-scratchheadyellow: :confusion-scratchheadblue: :confusion-confused: , so be sure the threaded end is good if you want it to screw into your Turk. Some Turk rifles have dirt in the rod nut and hole so you may have to make a smaller brass rod with a hammered flat tip that is smaller than the nut hole so you can use oil and a back & forth screw-driver motion to dig out and sort of screw out the dirt without messing up the rod nut threads, or pull the rod nut and clean out the rod chamber. It seems most Turkish Mausers at gun shows are missing the rod--- these are the ones that may have a ton of dirt/mud in the cleaning rod channel & rod nut. #-o :arrow: :idea: other ideas on dirt removal see http://forums.gunboards.com/showthread. ... ser-Rifles
:think: :think: :think: :snooty: :shifty: :shifty:

More info. on rods; see this old post: http://forums.gunboards.com/showthread. ... aning-rods
There are different models; a Turk Gew 88 is a different rod type. see

These people (Libertytreecollectors and Apex) still sell Turk rods (Jan 2015):

So back to more photos of Turk rods....... :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:
