German Kommission Kar88

Postby joseyclosey » Sat Dec 06, 2003 4:39 pm

bumped from exhibitionists forum!

Gewher-Prufungs-Kommission Karabiner 88 to give it the official title, this is my Kar 88.

the GPK developed a shortened version of the G88 in 1889,mine is a 1891 manufactured K88, in the original .318 7.92 round. made by c.g.haenel and v.c.schilling, suhl.

it is in very good condition apart from 2 little dents in the barrel jacket and a very professional stock repair where it has split around the hand grip.

i shoot only lead gas check bullets in this with mild pistol powder loads, currently useing alliant 2400. but unique gives good results,

it does not have any military stamps or marks so it has been a privately owned weapon.

enjoy the pictures.

reciever marks.

this is one of my favourite firearms, and definitely one of the most expensive. common sense went right out of the window when i bought it.:lol:;

Thanks for becoming a exhibitionist, joe. Lovely rifle. Definitely not one of your run of the mill milsurps. My envy level just went up five points.
