Cleaned the gun room & found these in a dusty corner. Time for a new home!

1) 1890 Spandau Gew88 in 8x57 caliber. Stock is sound with no cracks. Piece is missing by the barrel band as shown. Finish is faded. Bore is good+ and no bulges. Rifling is a consistent depth the length of the barrel. Bolt head, rear sight slider and cleaning rod are present.

A little pitting on the barrel shroud under the stock, but it doesn't go through the metal. No pitting on the barrel.

Barrel shroud and receiver # match - bolt does not.

$275 shipped to the lower 48. SW

2) 1878 Torino Italian Vetterli "cadet carbine" in 10.4x47R caliber

Not really a cadet carbine (no such thing) - I'm selling this as a shooter rather than a collectible. I bought a barreled action and fitted a spare stock to it. Shoots and functions great, but as with any antique rifle, have it checked before shooting & measure bore for correct boolet size. All the standard caveats and disclaimers apply.

Stock is sound with no cracks. Barrel is G-VG with consistent rifling depth & shiny. Finish is faded with a scuff by the nose cap. Front sight is in a dovetail which will make adding one of a different height easy.

The bolt by the trigger guard is all I had on hand with the right thread pitch when I fitted the stock.

$250 shipped to the lower 48.

The Gew88 is 8x57. There's an S above the crown on the receiver ring, but it's not cut for the longer cartridge. I saw in my chronograph log I used .321" boolets in it. The Vett is 10.4x47R. SW
