Yep. You'll need a barrel vise and receiver wrench. You can buy them at Brownells, Midway, and other places...or take the rifle to a gunsmith and have him remove the barrel. I'm in the process of rebarreling three Turk mausers and yes, the old barrels are stuck on tight. If you're buying a pre-threaded replacement barrel, you should know that many of the Turk mausers are large ring receivers with small ring thread dimensions. Double check your receiver before you order a barrel, or you may have to get it rethreaded. Good luck with your project.

If you’re going to toss the barrel, you can make it easier to remove by the following: With a hacksaw, cut a groove all the way around the barrel within maybe a 1/32nd to a 1/16th inch of where the barrel butts up against the receiver. Obviously, you don’t cut into the receiver at all. Make the groove about as deep or just a little deeper than the contact area between the barrel and the receiver (maybe 3/16th inch, I forget!). This groove will relieve some of the side pressure. However, some Turkish Mausers have a recessed barrel seat in the receiver – this may not be so helpful if you’ve got one of those. If you don’t use a barrel wrench as mentioned by Yankee1911, you stand a chance of warping the receiver!
