Hi Gent`s

this is my oldest original Rifle i got

Commission Rifle 1888
Caliber 8x57 IS
Turkish Contract
This Rifle was adopted for the new 8mm Spitzer Bullet and fit for the Clipround Charger
Bore is used but Lands and Fields are clearly to see.
The Action is very smooth and the Triggerpull leaves thes the firing pin at 800 grams ...
i shoot Lead Bullets with reduced Loads with this old Warhorse

NOE Bullet Mould 215 grs Bullet , 6,2 grs Alliant Bullseye Powder, Large Pistol Magnum Primers

Beautiful rifle. The bolt and trigger assembly resembles a lot with the Mosin Nagant. 800 grams trigger pull is pretty decent. Thanks for sharing.
