Interesting inscription at the top. it seems only on 1920's Turkey adopted Latin Alphabet so that can be some sort of Arabic based one from an earlier period which would fit the supposed period of the time these guns were taken. . Would mean they were indeed of Turkish origin.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_alphabet

Do we have a forum member that can read Arabic /Turkish?
