brought it home for $65. wood fair, finish rough, bore shiny, rifling sharp. seems mostly complete and functional, but...
i think i'm missing the mag floorplate and the bolt head/extractor.
anyone got a good reference for this fine vintage firarm, or a picture of the bolt to share? i'm told numrich may still have parts.

thank you very much, wonderful information!
i believe that my rifle was not converted (05/14), and not sold to turkey.

ordinarily i wouldn't dare to "clean up" a vintage rifle, but it seems that '88s are not that rare (in fact it looks like i paid a little too much for a rifle in this condition).

i'll console myself with the remote possibility that this '88 may have served with my krag in the boxer rebellion.

i may try to buff up and repair it, although i'll likely never shoot it. thanks again!
