Was at my LGS today and they’d had a woman bring an unregistered 1933 Turkish Mauser in her deceased husband owned.
They really didn’t want to hold onto it. Pretty well no collector’s around here and no one else would want it.
Owner offered to sell it to me for $110, including the transfer fee, as is. I caved and said yes. It’s dirty but seems complete and the bore is dark but I can see rifling.
What do I need to know about these? It’s in 8mm Mauser, is this actually still around as factory ammo or will I have to reload for it? How does one check the headspace?
