We have a few Kar 88 Carbines still available! These rifles are considered as "C Grade Condition" carbines are are the last ones available. These rifles have a crack in the stock and/or a handmade stock made in Ethiopia. Many of these carbines have Emperor Menelik II's markings on the barrel jacket or receiver. There is pitting on most of these last few rifles and they are missing the rear sights. Pease note, the photo above is of an A Grade condition Kar 88. Due to this condition, we have significantly reduced the price from $799.99 to $399.99! Only a few available.

5 of 5 KAR88 June 9, 2020
Reviewer: Jared from Fort Laramie, WY  
Great example of the KAR88 dated "1891".  Issued to a couple different Bavarian units before Ethiopian marks.  Stock is good.  Bore is ok. Some surface rust in trigger guard and under barrel that was taken care of with boiling and buffing with fine wire wheel. Bore was coverted to  "S" but other than that original configuration.
