    I would link you to the thread John (JPS) illustrated his rifle, it was on gunboards during 2006 which means it was purged, so all I have are the pictures and the text that I saved. The pictures are...

    I won't pretend to know very much about the G88, but isn't this a 88/05? The stripper clip guide is different on an 88/14? This was subject to a major discussion back in 2003-2004 and I am not sure...

    The top marking is the cypher, the Prussian King, who was also the Kaiser. The Crowned/D looks suspicious to me, odd anyway, they did use Latin letters late in the war, so it could be ok, but the...
