'nudder rfle question - 8mm Mauser

Does anyone know where I can find a 20 round magazine for my Turkish Mauser? I found one online, but I'm not totally sure that it'll work.

Thanks

The Germans had 20 round mags in WW1 and WW2 and they are rare, so its most likely a reproduction

I'm mostly after the look factor. It's like getting a bayonet for it...don't really need it, but it looks good and it's authentic ( I want one of those, too).

I doubt it will work with the turkish mauser, most of the old 20 round extended "trench mags" were intended only for the german made K and S series, and only fit certan numbers of them. In truth from what ive read of them, they tended to feed poorly and jam quite offten. Also, to be authentic, it would have to be on the properly serial numbered rifle to have been issued for it.

If memory serves me right, that unit had to be refit at the fatory and wasnt something that could be fit first time in the field. This would mean the weapon would also get a special armory marking from the mauser factory that did the retrofit, to show it was back, and a change in the date stamp on the bottom of the large ring reciever. (note, it will NOT work with a small ring mauser)

Cool, thanks. I haven't heard that they jam. Thanks for helping me not make a big mistake.
