Cool Forgotten Weapons merch! http://shop.bbtv.com/collections/forgotten-weapons
This rifle began life as a German Gewehr 88 rifle in German military service. It was sent to Ethiopia, marked in Amharic, and then at some point cut down to carbine length. The shortened gun retains the infantry-type side bayonet lug and front sight, but has a slightly bent bolt handle and no rear sight at all. This is definitely not a factory configuration, but I don’t know when the changes to it were made…
Thanks to InterOrdnance for giving me access to film a bunch of their interesting Ethiopian-import rifles!

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
