They are likely all correct..Need pics to be sre and more description of the rifle..it could be one of many models refurbed in '36

Just as the diff. rifles were reworked to standardize them to 8mm, M38 cofiguration..many many types of bayonets were also reworked to fit them

Can you post some pics of the top of the action from front all the way to rear with bolt ..and some pics of your bays?

The turks reworked every blade they could buy cheap, capture, or find lying around in an arsenal to fit the standardized mounts on their rifles. I've seen a cut down original 1893 Solingen marked bayonet with remnants of the Sultans "Toughra", an "Ersatz" German bayonet, a chopped and ground German WWI with remnants of the sawback, and a 1907 Wilkinson marked British - a Gallippoli or Mesopotamia capture, plus those built for the rework program. They simply didn't care if the bayonets "matched" the rifles.
