The attached photo shows a Volkssturm unit being issued hand grenades. The member in the foreground has a Mannlicher rifle in the shoulder slung position. Is it a Model 1888, or something else?
Thanks,
Pat

I can't see the area behind the rear sight, which will tell me whether it is 88/90 or 1890. The difference between them is the size of the "shank", or the barrel flange (longer in M.90)

Roger that Nick, thanks. That's close enough for me-
