No, some were made with the mag cutoff box in a pistolgrip stock. Every one I bought had a crack or 2 at the corners of the box, likely the reason the box was milled off so stocks without the cutout for the box could be used.
That Spanish gas port was a later addition ( in the 1916's?) The spanish 1893 bolts fit perfectly. Also the bolts and receivers in the Turks, made by Mauser, are so close in tolerances I could swap all of mine without inducing headspace issues.

The 1903 is a 98 type action, gas shield on bolt, usually a charger hump on the rear bridge, and cocks on closing. The firing pin travel is half that of the 1893, so the striker doesn't stick out the back of the bolt nearly as far when the rifle is coocked.
