    Default Need help on regimental markings on my Kar88

    I know next to nothing about regimental markings. I was thinking the sight ears might be a Bavarian reserve ammunition unit? Seems like that would be likely duty for an out of date rifle in the first war, but sling band I have no idea. Any help appreciated.

    The rear band is Bavarian 1st Schweres Reiter Regiment (They were a heavy cavalry unit)

    I believe you are correct on the front band... Bavarian Reserve Feld Artillerie Munitionskolonne

    Hope that helps
