There is no "Gew 88 Carbine". It is either a "gewehr" or a "karabiner", but not both. There is Gewehr 88, Karabiner 88 and Gewehr 91, which is a Kar 88 with a stacking hook.Okay, I might have it wrong. What is the difference between a GEW 88 carbine and a GEW 91 carbine? Can you post pics?
No, I already have a Norski m/1912.
Thanks for the kind words RE my crude literary attempts. My fragile ego needs all the support it can get.
Sean was this at Maumee? I have yet to see a Kar 88 in any condition in person so I would say, pretty darn rare, at least around our neck of the woods.
