Nor did they offer the M100 rifle in .358.

This got me thinking – did they offer the M88 carbine in .358?  I don’t think so.

I’d be pleased to learn I was wrong on either of these points.

The model 88 came out around 1955 and was in calibers 308, 243 and 358. Later, the 284 was added.  Supposedly there’s a few model 100’s in 358 but looking at the barrel stamp, they might have been faked by stamping over the zero in 308 and boring them out to 358.

And no carbines in .358 – correct?
