RARE, Turkish Cavalry Mauser Model 1905 7.65mm Calibre Carbine. Sn 11846 - 11846
Prior to the introduction of the M1905 Turkish Carbine, which was purchased from Mauser, the Turkish Cavalry had been armed with a combination of outdated arms including the black-powder M1887 Mauser Carbine, along with smokeless-powder conversions of the M1874 Peabody-Martini single-shot rifle. They were in desperate need of modern Carbines and received them in the form of the compact, quick-handling M1905 Mauser. Like the M1903 rifle, this excellent little carbine was patterned on the 1898 Mauser action. The Carbine has a full-length stock with a nose cap flush with the muzzle. There was no provision for a bayonet, as the Turkish Cavalrymen at the time were still carrying sabres and lances in the same vein as their European counterparts. The M1905 was loaded via the patented Mauser charger system. There are slight variations to be found among surviving examples of these rare carbines. The M1905 was issued primarily to the Cavalry, but also to Engineers and Artillery Troops. This is a rare original, 7.65mm calibre Turkish Contract German Mauser M1905 Carbine. The woodwork and metal work are in good original condition with service wear to be expected and it cocks, strips and dry fires perfectly. The breech housing is stamped with Turkish script and emblem. It is serial number 7515. The Carbine is complete with sling swivels, cleaning rod and correct turned down bolt (to prevent snagging on uniform). It has an adjustable rear sight and winged fore sight. Price includes deactivation certificate & UK delivery. Sn 11846
