Following the Turkish war of Independance, 1920-22, Turkey rearmed with Czech model 98/22.  This rifle was based upon the Mexican Model 1912 was the first rifle adopted for service with the Czech army.  Manufactured from 1924 to 1930 by the BRNO Arms Works (Czechoslovak State Armament Works, BRNO) in Czechoslovakia.  Turkey re-numbered the rifles hence the double serial stamp.
