    I reamed one of my Turk large rings to 8mm-06 wildcat. It had excess head space so I figured why not. A few guys on surplusrifleforum.com went in with me to buy a reamer, and pass it around. It gets you halfway between 30-06 and .338-06, and looks promising. I need to take it out and give it some love, see what it will do...

    This will give you an idea how big and heavy the Mauser firing pins are. Pin hell, these ought to be called firing rods. LOL

    The barrel I'm using is a Shilen #5 contour. It's 22" long, has a 1 in 10 twist and comes short chambered.

    Installing the barrel.

    I clamped the barrel into the barrel vise using lead shims.

    With the receiver set up in the receiver wrench, it's just a matter of torquing it down.

    I installed the receiver into the stock, then added the bolt lock, scope rail, grip cap, recoil pad and swivels.
    It's getting close now.

    Most folks pass on the turkish mausers but they really do make great sporters. The only thing is its a large ring that takes a small ring bbl, so getting a bbl in a decent calibur is not as easy as getting one for a true large ring. E.R. Shaw will make you a bbl in one of the longer, higher pressure chamberings, i.e. 30-06,270 win, 308 win,etc that costs no more than their standard bbls, or at least they used to. So dont pass up a mauser simply because its a "crappy" turk. I dont know why they got such a bad rap. edit: I would like to see a bolt gun forum here.

    i HAVE A SPORTERISED TURK MAUSER K KALE . ITS HAS A REALLY LIGHT WEIGHT PLASTIC STOCK WITH THAT USES NO FLOOR PLATE ITS A REALLY NICELY BALANCED GUN HAS A LIGHT WEIGHT 308 WIN SPORTER BARREL.

    FROM WHAT IVE BEEN READING THE M96 6.5X55 SWEDE BARREL WILL SCREW RIGHT ON A TURK . I SEE YOU NEED TO TURN OF THE EXTENSION ON THE RECIVER OR TURN THE BARREL SPECIAL.

    CAN A REMINGTON TAKE OFF BARREL HAVE THE EXISTING TREADS TURNED OFF AN BE THREADED FOR A SMALL RING??????? I THINK I SAW THAT IT CAN SOME WERE. IF SO THEN A BARREL CAN BE HAD CHEAP IF YOU GOT A LATHE OR KNOW SOME ONE.
