This is my first post, I have a few Gew 88s in my collection and have managed to get one of each maker and the odd double up 88S and 88/05
Attached is photo's from the receiver of my 88/05 AMBERG 1898 and is mostly miss-matched parts :shock:

Here is one of the first modified 88s rifles that does not have an "S" on the receiver but an "S" with a crown on top stamped into the side of the butt stock, 1890 STEYR all matching numbers that was issued to the 101 Reserve Regiment 3rd Company rifle 54 :D
