    Agree 100%. Though my wallet is on fire, I'm not slowing down. Richest market for nice stuff in many years.

    Great rifle Frank! You are a lucky man!

    Can you post a pic of the firing proof under the bolt handle?

    You can get turk ones for $4-500 these days. The ones worth getting are of course more. Nice matching ones do not show up as often any more.

    These tend to be stepchildren compared to Mausers (I...

    Gew88 bolts have been idiotic of late. I saw one hit $700 not too long ago on fleabay.

    Thanks Paul, That would be very interesting to see.

    It's a shame the bolt is m/m on this example, but beggars can't be choosers I suppose. I was happy just to get one.

    I'm hoping to come...

    Thanks Paul, I was quite pleased when I saw it on the rack at the shop! Not often stuff like this shows up in my area.

    I would be curious to see if there are any earlier no-letter block examples...

    I remember the one with the experimental mag. One of many I am sad I missed at CB's auction.

    That makes total sense-- they tried to peddle some that Prussia turned away to Bavaria and they declined. China would be another likely place to try and park them.

  10. National Arms and Ammunition Co. Birmingham Gewehr 71

    Hi All,

    These rifles have interested me since learning about them several years ago. The notion of a British-made M71 is a curious one. According to Storz, a contract for 150,000 rifles was...

    I remember this one now.

    Well, there you have it on the anchor. For some reason I had it in my head it was a droop wing e/M on this example.

    I'm assuming this would be the earliest...

    Interesting, that's the same mark from the 98a. I'm still not very familiar with it, but I'd be curious to hear what Paul or others say.

    I'm assuming this was the one at RIA and later sold by Eisel on GB?

    I didn't recognize the anchor as something German. I don't know of any historic usage of an anchor on their small arms. I...

    Thanks guys! These were often stored vertically with the buttplate on the ground. It was also not a part that was given attention on routine maintenance. You'll see clean ones but usually that means...

    Screamer1914 Erfurt Kar98a

    Hi all,

    I walked into a local shop and was lucky enough to snag this. It's a tricky maker/date to find matching, let alone in this condition. I think the only knock is that it's not unit marked...

    Side note: Did you see the Baden Zollkarabiner I posted in your 88 research thread? I lucked into that one at a smaller auction house.

    The sling itself looks original to me. It's a different design than the 98a. The loop is actually sewn onto the sling in a fixed position. There are several holes similar to a 98a though.

    VCS Prussian Landgendarmerie Kar88

    Storz covers the background on these fairly well, but the...

    That's a damn nice example Marc, also a trickier arsenal to find them from. Very nice score. Get it apart when you get home. Would love to see the barrel acceptance and markings below the wood.

    It's an Erfurt Gew98 bolt bent by bubba from what I can see. It has the Erfurt "chicken" style eagle.
