Re: Bannerman Kar 88

Hi Tom cool rifle the S on top of the receiver used to mean it can shoot spire bullets with it, the N.M. on left side of receiver means the original barrel was updated with a stronger barrel, I have no idea what the Kr stamp by the serial number means perhaps a Bannerman marking

Re: Show off your Commission Rifle Projects

@ SEABEE general consensus is your son's rifle was shortened by Turkey. Your son is pretty cool to be interested in WW1 & so is Dad for buying such a great gift. Kudos

Re: reloading the 7.92x57J

I would use a .320 cast bullet the Gew88's were made with three different bore sizes during their production with the .323 being last the Gew88 had bores .311 with a .3215 bullet the U.S. 8mm ammo should be fine because they use undersized bullets

Re: GEW 88 Loewe Brelin

Hi 1888 I would say yes most all you see are 4 digit serial number & lower numbers seem to command higher prices when selling
