Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

M.95 Mannlicher 8x50R

#1 Post by M67 » Fri Oct 26, 2018 11:04 am

All matching rifle Mannlicher M.95 Gewehr in original 8x50R in original condition from my collection. Unfortunately I don't have sling for her. I have a lot of accessories, tools and bayonets, regular and Ersatz variants.

How Is the pull on the Bolt on this original compared to some of the later Conversions..??? Have read that some issues with the hard pulls on these M95s are because of the conversions.

Beautiful Rifle.. In your end of the world is there Surplus 8x50r and 8x56r floating around?? Does anyone produce new ammo for those over there???

I worked with one some years ago that was difficult to operate. Wound up pulling the bolt apart and greasing the internals well. Putting it back together was another story. At any rate, it now works smooth and easy. The owner loves it as a potent brush gun (it's a carbine) with plenty of power (and recoil).
Arguing with someone who denounces reason is like administering medicine to a corpse.

Our end of the world is full of historical artifacts. On the battlefield bellow our village I found a lot of empty cases 8x56R from ww2, German production. In 1944 there was ambush against german police convoy...By the way, my metal detector discovered there some 7,5x55 french empty cases. I have few original 8x50R cartridges from ww1. I dont know about new production. Maybe Prvi Partizan Užice in Serbia?

I saw just brass cases with dirt bird and 1938 year of production. German police used a lot of Mannlicher carbines during ww2 in Slovenia. Photo of the first Slovenian prisoner/hostage sentenced to death. You can noticed Mannlicher carbine on the back of the German policeman.

Beautiful Rifle!

Two of my old Slovene friends have old family stories about fighting the Germans and drinking Slivovitz. Very hard fighting in Slovenia.

I wonder how much of that Pre war & early War Ammo they made... We are still lots of that ammo on the surplus ammo.. I wonder if they made any ammo during the Occupation..

A very bleak photo, but alot going on in that..
