    I have a M88 reworked by the Turkish military, in 1938.
    (it has its bayonet lug, you just can’t see it in the photo)

    I would trade for a Mosin Nagant, Lee Enfield, or Mauser.

    Or other milsurps.

    This is a Gewehr 88, not a Mauser. What is the arsenal (K.Kale, Ankara?). It looks to be in good shape. What is the condition of the bore?

    Yeah sorry about that, I just learned that last night.
    The guy I bought it from said it was a Mauser and it took me a while to figure out what it actually was.

    The bore looks like it’s in pretty good shape especially for being from the days of corrosive primers.

    Well it sure looks like a Mauser action at first, so its an easy thing to miss. They're neat rifles. All GEW88s are antiques, BTW. No 01 or 03 FFL paperwork required in most states.

    Can you let me know what the arsenal is? Thanks :).

    Here this picture should tell you what arsenal.

    And on the magazine cover plate, there’s a stamp that looks like a bell with a lower case “e” in it, and it has 1914 under it.
