Turkish Mauser with ATI stock

This started life as an inexpensive purchase of an 8mm Turkish Mauser. The furniture on that however was such that obtaining a sight picture was awkward in the extreme due to the height of the stock comb.

A decision was made to fit it all to an ATI stock, which is patterned on the Steyr style. Not in itself very good looking but when offered up to shoot feels excellent. The bolt handle needs modified to go this route and while it can be bent to an angle with a flame, was in this case achieved by cutting off the original, then drilling and tapping to take an add-on piece.

With this set-up and the barrel length we have a quite reasonably accurate rifle at extended ranges and it is strong enough to handle the rather high pressure milsurp Turkish ammunition.
