NSN is a Model 1888 carbine built on contract in Belgium for one of the German States, a carbine version of the German 1888 infantry rifle. Caliber 7.92 X 57 with a bright excellent bore in the 17 1/4" barrel, this scarce carbine was partially sporterized by some former owners. This could be a project gun to reconfigure the piece to military, remove pistol gri, etc. This piece shows all of the Belgium export proofs, no receiver markings but original sights, bolt etc. Reference page 127" Bolt Action Military Rifles of the World" by Stuart Mowbray & Joe Pulco.
