    Glad to know you're happy with his products. We may all need them sometime.

    Out of curiosity, is it difficult and expensive to import the stocks from Poland?

    It is possible that the fellow in Poland, Fox-military.com, could make a stock for you. He seems to have a good reputation, from what I have read. He does not list the GEW88 on his site, however....

    No. I got the plate along with the stacking rod, but just needed the rod. Let me know. If you don't get the other, I'll look it up.

    that
    Thank you. I guess I should have looked. For some reason, I thought nobody would have addressed that particular issue. I was wrong. I guess I will dig deeper (here) in the future.

    Question on M71 Rifle marking

    I have an M71 Mauser made by Amberg with a low number (2106) which is marked as made and issued in 1877. Where this rifle differs from others I own and have seen is that it bears no royal cipher,...

    I believe, though you might want to check this, that the Remington and Winchester 170 grain commercially loaded ammunition has a .321 bullet. It has been said in many forums that this ammo is good...

    Congratulations on that find. It's amazing what's coming out of French attics now that the laws concerning really old military rifles have apparently been eased up a little bit.

    Probably imported from Turkey with those markings, plus it is a 1917 Mauser Oberndorff product if I am reading the date correctly, and that contract was supposedly largely sent to Turkey during WW1.

    question on RC bolt fit up

    I do not collect Mausers from after WW1, normally, but prices in the "old" days on RC rifles were too tempting. I have a JP Sauer from 1938 and a Borsigwald from 1939. Both came with electro...

    I believe the "crowned" W stands for the Prussian King (and Emperor) William. Probably the First of the two.

    Sad story

    Here is the second example. An extra bolt I acquired somewhere.
    Sorry, could not figure how to put all the attachments in one reply.
    Both bolts are composed of parts which numerically match.
