Model 1888/90 Mannlicher Rifle

These guns come straight out of Ethiopia. The Model 1888/90 rifles are in fair condition. Bores range from poor to good. The stocks might have some dings, dents or small cracks. Cracks in the stock are usually in the wrist area and generally can be repaired/reinforced with some work. These rifles may also have some light pitting or surface rust in some areas. The rifles may have a missing safety lever. These guns are true, authentic pieces of history and should not be missing in any WW1 and Austro-Hungarian firearms collection. 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.

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

4 of 5 Nice example November 22, 2022
Reviewer: Charlene from Georgia, USA  
I ordered one of these 88/90 rifles, with no hand select options, just asking for one with some life left. RTI did not disappoint. The rifle I received hadsolid stock, plenty of dings, no cracks, and only small lower corner bit missing by butt plate. Bore was dark as sin, but rifling present, and measured 0.323-0.324 and 0.330-0.333. Volley sight parts were there, but rear sight leaf dented. Only affects using the volley slider, so no issue there. Only mechanical issue was broken extractor, but I expected that. Overall, I'd recommend, and would buy again.

5 of 5 Not bad at all October 29, 2022
Reviewer: Matthew Jacobs from MA  
Just got the old rifle in. For context, I did pay the $100 hand select fee, so theres that. The rifle is 100% complete, and besides finish wear and dents and dings, is in pretty decent condition. I haven't  cleaned the bore yet, but I do see a good amount of rifling. This is also a very mechanically interesting design. A falling block bolt action... I'm quite satisfied with my purchase.

5 of 5 M1888/90 October 6, 2022
Reviewer: Eli from Missouri  
Ordered a M1888/90 during the Labor Day sale and it was better than expected. Only missing the safety (easily found a replacement), has a decent bore, the volley sight pin is intact, AND its unit marked. Mine was 1891 dated.

5 of 5 Cool rifle October 2, 2022
Reviewer: Julian T from NC  
Bought this during the labor day sale. Rifle came complete minus the safety lever. Metal has no blueing left but is otherwise in great shape. Bore still has strong rifling. Wood is in good condition and has a faint AOI stamp which I am happy to see. Action is smooth.  Barrel bands and stacking lug are loose but present. Overall I am satisfied and would recommend.

5 of 5 Great rifle September 23, 2022
Reviewer: Shane from KS  
I ordered one of these during the flash sale. Was very surprised with what I got. Stock was beautiful other then one crack. Had very strong marking. Bore was a little dark but very strong rifling. It was missing the safety and stacking rod. The big surprise was that I actually received a true 1890 rifle, had the heavier chamber and the 1890 sight, not the 88 sight with the 90 plates on it. I’ll have to order another and see if I get the 88/90 this time. Over a great rifle. Couldn’t be any happier.
