    Default Kar 88, VC Schilling, 1890, matching

    Picked up this matching Kar 88 last Saturday. I ran out of light
    but when I get it disassembled, I will add barrel data.

    (Can anyone tell me why every picture is correct on my screen, but inverted when I post?)
    ***Edit. Apparently the inverted pictures problem is related to the photo software in an iPhone
    not being compatible with many forums. In the future I will go back to using a conventional camera.

    Hello runner,

    thats a nice little carbine. Regarding the unit markings this K88 was first issed to the 2. Bavarian Uhlan (lancers) regiment and after its service there it was given to a
    Bavarian Ersatz-Pferde-Depot (a sort of horse caretaking unit).

    With kind regards

    Thank you for the translation of the unit markings. Would you mind taking a stab at two others? These are on two other carbines that I have.

    No problem.

    The first one is from the Bavarian 2. Chevaulegers-Regiment, 3. squadron, weapon no. 28. The Chevaulegers were a cavalry specific to the royal bavarian army.

    The other is from the 16. Train-Bataillon, Ersatz Abtailung, weapon no. 62. The Train bataillons were the support units of the german armies.


    With kind regards
