Turkish 1898a/37 Short Rifle

The 1898a/38 is another standard short rifle produced from WWI left overs.  The Kar98AZ is taken and fitted with a standard 1898 type H-band and bayonet lug.  They generally retain their bent bolts and are identifiable by their receivers that are internally the same as the Gew.98, but of smaller outside diameter that makes for a sleek and narrow rifle.

Rumored to have been produced for the Turkish Engineers.

Cal 7.92x57mm with good bore.

Stock Number 8699
