Bannerman Kar 88

Unread postby TomtheWestSider » Wed Nov 07, 2018 12:25 pm

Well, I've got myself a new Kar 88, supposedly sporterized by Bannerman's. It's a beautiful old rifle, remarkably light and handy, though identifying all of the markings is giving me a bit of trouble. Also, it's completely matching- down to the screws that won't budge. Here's the pictures. What can you all tell me?

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
