I realize that this is a forum for the 98k but I thought I would start asking here first. I have an opportunity to purchase a GWR 88 as an addition to my Mauser collection from a local dealer as a private sale. I have no idea what this rifle sells for. I would also like to know more about this rifle. It has Spandau and 1890 stamped on the ring. I would assume that it was made in 1890. However it also has what would appear to be a date stamp on the bottom of the magazine of "1914". Was this something modified for WW1? I believe it is chambered in 8mm Mannlicher. Unfortunately the stock is broken off just behind the receiver. It can probably be repaired but I would prefer to replace it. I checked with GunParts but they list the stock as being out of stock. If anyone can giive me any more information about this rifle or direct me to a site I would be eternally grateful. Does anyone, bychance, have an old stock for it laying around?
