    Please help ID this rifle.

    Some say this is a custom build Mannlicher, some say otherwise. Can someone help me ID this so I can get it insured. Thanks.

    Its a sporterized 88 commission rifle or carbine

    A mannlicher-schoenaur doesn't have the mag protruding like that. I put second vote on commission 88. It was a thing to do this between the wars and sell as commercial sporters. That spoon bolt handle was desireable at that time and was done to a lot of sporters. If I remember correctly I heard them refrence as guild guns.
