My Dad has a Mexican Mauser barrel in 30.06 for this one already. He just re-barreled an M48 recently too because it was shot out. He likes to get these $69-$79 guns and make tack drivers out of them. You should see the results of his M44. From 12 inch groups to 2 inch with Chinese surplus at 100 yards. He has way more patience than I have yet.Pogo said:Let us know how what condition it is in. I've bought and sold about a half dozen Turks and all of them have had the bore shot out. Maybe it's time for me to try another one. Good Luck.
