Hand Select Overall Condition (+$100) [Add $100.00]


Model 1888/90 Mannlicher Rifle

The Model 1888/90 rifles are in fair condition.

These guns come straight out of Ethiopia. We do not check the bores, unless a hand select fee is paid. Bores range from poor to good. Please keep in mind that these guns are 130 years old and back then there were no "non Corrosive" primers available. Many of these rifles were used by the Austro-Hungarian military and have unit markings, as well as property markings of "AOI", Africa Orientale Italiana, when the Italians claimed these weapons and used them from 1935 to 1941.

The stocks might have some dings, dents or small cracks. These rifles may also have some light pitting or surface rust in some areas. These guns are true, authentic pieces of history and should not be missing in any WW1 and Austro-Hungarian firearms collection.

This is a great chance to get this historical rifle for your collection!

4 of 5 NRA Antique Fair February 16, 2022
Reviewer: Kevin from Pennsylvania  
The good: After deep cleaning, the stock was very good looking, despite a repaired crack. The action was slick.
The bad: The sling swivels were damaged, 0 finish metal left, stacking rod damage, safety mechanism missing, rifling shot out at the muzzle, all marks worn beyond reading on metal and pitting throughout the bore even after scrubbing and polishing.


RTI reached out. As I understand condition is luck of the draw and since I have already replaced or repaired the missing/damaged parts, I turned down the offer to return the rifle and accepted a discount instead. They made a better attempt at fixing the issue than most companies would.

5 of 5 Complete, functional rifle September 9, 2021
Reviewer: Oland from TX  
Nice, intact stock. No cracks. No unit or property markings anywhere though. Only Å’WG stamped on the receiver. All hardware, inc. sling swivels are present. Cleaning rod missing but that's to be expected. Bore is dark but has strong rifling which is a bonus. Rifle fires and functions fine. I'm pleased to give this one 5 stars.
