I don't know enough to tell you what it is, other than that by that photo it looks like a great looking rifle. I'd love to see some more pics.

badly struck "4" in 1940 Kkale

Very common defect in Kirikkale-made Turk mausers (1940-46). ( Pre-production runs done in late 1939, factory established by CZ and ASFA in 1938-39.)

Go to Parallax Turkish Board and check your serial number against my (DocAV) survey...the number will correspond with the 1940 range.

The finish looks "pimped up"--- Even newish K'kale Mausers don't "shine"...they were a Dull Blue.

Good example none the less.

My 1940 K.Kale receiver is so poorly stamped it almost appears "melted" - Nice looking rifle even in reworked condition. My 1940 Turk was my first real milsurp, it's what started me down the path of collecting all of this old crap. ;)
