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.

GEW 88 carbine rear sight?

#1 Post by bampa » Fri Mar 23, 2018 4:16 pm

I bought a bunch of gun parts at a show recently and one of the rear sights in the box is what I think is from a GEW 88 carbine. I think it is complete, but I'm not sure. Please check out the photos. I plan to sell this at a show, but my internet search is not giving me much to work on in determining value. I'd greatly appreciate any information on it and its value. Thanks in advance for any replies....

Looks more like an Argentina model 1891 carbine rear sight. Libertytreecollectors has them for sale and it looks just like it. Needs the correct base and lock-down screw. No. Disregard I SAW ONE IDENTICAL TO YOURS AT A COLLECTORS SHOW TODAY. He had it marked as a GEW88 sight as you thought and he had a price of $55.00 on it.
I was R.L.E.V.M. on our old forum.
