Fantastic 1890 Dated Danzig G88 Commission Rifle.
Upon the discovery of smokeless powder, the Germans followed suit behind the French and their Lebel rifle and in 1886, German Army’s Rifle Testing Commission designed the G88 or Gewehr 88 Commission Rifle.
The G88 was not produced by Mauser amongst other larger companies, this example is produced by Danzig in 1890.
Many G88's around 1904 were re-chambered from their 8mm Rimless to the Spitzer bullet (7.92x57) a more powerful and streamlined bullet with more charge. This item has the correct stamp 'S' on the receiver to show it has been converted.
This item is all matching numbers apart from the bolt which is usually the case with these rifles.
Complimented with a Smooth, Dry Firing Action.
