Re: Commercial GEW 88 Rifle

That's one tough security guard cat you got there :lol: . Interesting about the rear sight being more forward on your commercial 88 than military rifles and picture with soldier wearing a steel helmet carrying a Gew88 are not seen often either i think :shock: P.M. sent

Orbill you lucked out with that gunsmith I do not know anywhere where you can order those parts maybe the enbloc clip but they don't work as well as the originals now if you could just find the ammo you'd be set.
