Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

M1888 Austrian Mannlicher

#1 Post by nrobertb » Sun Aug 27, 2017 9:24 pm

Here are some pics of my M1888 Austrian Mannlicher. It shoots best with .327 205 gr. boattail bullets and 3031 powder. Like all Mannlichers it requires a special clip that drops out of the receiver when empty.

Have any M.88 clips with markings that aren't on the clip list? :)

That rifle looks great. Shame about the clip.
