A Mauser G88/05 Amberg 1893 Stamped Commision Rifle With Regimental Markings & Original Cleaning Rod & Sling Swivels. Sn 9727
An original Mauser G88/05 Amberg 1893 stamped Commision Rifle with original cleaning rod and sling swivels. Produced in Konigliche Bayerische Gewehrfabrik in Amberg, Bavaria. The rifle was issued in WW1 to reserve troops and then to Turks for Gallipoli and Mesopotania. The rifle has numerous modifications making it a 88/05, a small cut was made on the front of the receiver face to provide clearance for the pointed bullet of the Patrone S when loaded from a charger, a thumb clearance cut in the left side of the receiver wall made it easier to strip rounds down into the magazine, a slightly longer magazine follower insured the feeding of rounds without the clip and other minor modifications. (see page 105 of German Gew 88 Commission Rifle book by Paul Scarlata). The rifle is in excellent condition, with good original undamaged woodwork. The stock has a steel butt plate. The rifle is fitted with sling swivels to the stock and second ring. It has an adjustable rear sight. The receiver is stamped with "Gew 88" and "Amberg 1893 2462" and proof marks with the Turkish half moon and "S." The muzzle ring is nicely stamped with regimental marks of "10 R 8 10" and the second ring with regimental marks " 124 R F 12". The rifle strips, cocks and dry fires perfectly. This is a very nice example of the Mauser G88. The price includes Deactivation certificate and Uk delivery.
