Austro-Hungarian M95 Mannlicher (8x50r)
Available 3 Stutzens 1 original 8x50 infantry rifle                This was the standard issue rifle of the Austro-Hungarians in WW1, along w/the Bulgarians, originally chambered in 8x50 most were later reworked in the 30's for the 8x56 cartridge which would be indicated by a large S over the chambers.
All the rifles pictured here are in original 8x50 caliber & in WW1 configuration, there are 1 long rifle & 2 short rifles or Stutzen, 1 of the Short rifles is very interesting as it has a 1910 french coin inlet into the wrist on each side, most likely a "trench art" mod done by either a French or Austro-Hungarian soldier.

This is a standard enlisted bayonet for the rifle, the original WW1 era bayonets had green scabbards, after WW1 the scabbards were refinished in black

1895 Gendarmerie bayonet
Rare variant of an M85 bayonet, it has an M95 type hilt w/a straight quadrangular blade, reportedly for use of the Gendarmerie troops, I believe they were normally issued w/short rifles.

M95 rifle rear sight
The rifle rear sight is longer than the Stutzen sight, when looking at Stutzens check the rear sight as a lot of rifles were cut down to Stutzen standard but retained the rifle sight.

M95 Stutzen (short rifle) right
The short rifles were the same action & stock as the rifles, but w/a shorter forend & barrel, the swivel arrangements were also different, the rifle had both swivels on the bottom, Stutzen usually had a swivel both on the top & the bottom at front & rear, there were a number of different swivel styles & there are some w/2,3 & 4 locations. The Stutzen were issued to "special" troops, artillery, engineers, fortification etc, the M95 cavalry carbine is a bit different, it is the same size (length etc) as the Stutzen but has different fittings, swivels only on the side of the wrist & the middle band, no bayonet lug & no stacking hook, original cavalry carbines are extremely rare as most were fitted w/Stutzen fittings starting late in the war & thereafter
