Picked this up off gunbroker! It was the talk in the most recent turk mauser thread. I couldint let it go! When I won it for what I had put on it, I couldint believe I won it for that price, and not more! Here she is all original non modfied 1893 Turkish mauser in the 7.65 caliber! The only problems is that the bolt release was stuck and frozen which I fixed! The rear sight ladder is missing, and it needs a extractor, and once I find them she will be complete! Her age is wearing, but for well over 100 years old and in the original caliber, you just don't find these often! So here she is!

Outstanding find!! Kind of like a four leaf clover in a football field size area filled with three leaf clover.

Congratulations on a great find! As noted, these are very difficult to find with original features.
I'm not sure of the slings origin, but I have to say it looks totally appropriate on the rifle! The Turks used quite a variety of slings over time, including some modified from other countries. You may have seen John Sheehan's WW1 Militaria and Arms forum here on Gunboards which has a sticky with many great photos of original Turk rifles for reference.

The original slings were leather, supplied by Mauser. Long gone, rotted away, but anyone who does some careful searching of old photos and illustrations could probably duplicate them. Mostly they were replaced by hand made leather carry straps or more professionally made web carry straps.

JJK I kinda figured because the sling looks nothing like it would come from the mauser factory so im under the impression that it is a original ww1 sling just instead made by the turks!

Hmmmm, I don't know. These markings look a lot like ones that were on an Egyptian Remington Rolling Block I once owned.
