If I had it it would be in a Boyds stock with a bent bolt handle and scope mounts and a jeweled bolt.  *6' *6' *6' *6' It is a nice rifle. Very nice.

How did you clean off all the grime off the stock? I have an 1895 Spandau GEW88 I want to restore.

There was no grime on this stock or else were, what you're seeing is essentially a brand new original condition rifle.  It was issued but stored very well and never used. Never had cosmo touch it.

Nope, it is in it's original caliber 11.1560mmR Mauser (.43 Mauser).
And was originally issued to the 2nd Grenadiers "King Frederick William IV" Reserve Regiment based in Stettin as part of II Army Corps.

That is one....NICE.....rifle! I have one but it was shortened. A friend of mine has one he bought for $5.00 .....65 years ago, that is quite nice. Have you shot yours yet? I have the Lee reloading dies and 2 different bullet molds and have made brass. My friend bought a box of Bertram brass for his rifle. They are a blast (pun intended) to shoot. Here is a thread I posted on our sister forum.

I have also made some brass from 300 Win. Mag brass, but that is very labor intensive!
