This is an excellent example of an M95 Steyr straight pull bolt carbine. The M95 was first manufactured at the Steyr plant and then in Budapest at an Island Arsenal set up by Steyr. This is one of those and the breech is stamped 'Budapest M95 (illustrated). These weapons were used throughout WW1 and in 1930 the Austrian Government updated this carbine for the 8 x 56R cartridge and the sights altered. The receivers were stamped 'S' for Stutzenkarabiner. When the Nazi's came to power these rifles and carbines were given to Bulgarian Units. They were also standard issue for the Russian Navy. The wood furniture of this weapon is in great condition as is the metal work which has a nice patina throughout. It cocks and dry fires perfectly and the price for this original, nicely stamped weapon includes deactivation certificate and UK delivery. Sn 6548.
