1888 german commision rifle
 
Does any body have or know where I could find a bolt or two for a 1888 German commission rifle. My friend has two rifles with out the bolts. He bought them at a show in a parts box.

Hello,

I'll keep an eye out. They are very scarce.

Got lucky and found my M88/05 complete for $37.50! :D

Will be back; might have a source, or a resource at least.

Ok thanks a lot.

Remember, if you want to shoot these with 8x57mm ammo you'll need to handload it with .318" bullets, don't use the now standard .323" dia. bullet. ;)
