Turkish Mauser Extractor

I broke it my rifle is the 1938 Turkish Mauser 8mm variety. Where can i get a new Turkish Mauser extractor or a different one that will work the same way?

In 1938, Turkey did a general overhaul of all their rifles and altered them to a general and more modern configuration, calling them all "Model 38". The upshot was that a Turkish Model 38 can be almost anything Turkey had on hand. More than likely it is a Model 98 Mauser, but a picture would help or at least a better description, including what the magazine and bolt look like.

The rifle in the link is a M98 design, any M98 extractor should fit and function well, although it may require a bit of fitting. There is a chance your rifle could be an 1893 Mauser, in which case it will be harder to locate an extractor. The easy way to tell is M93s cock on closing, M98s cock on open.
