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.

Chinese Mannlichers

#1 Post by Zeliard » Fri Nov 10, 2017 5:56 pm

The site, http://chinesefirearms.com/ has a good bit of info about Chinese firearms in general, but thanks to a guy named Gindenburg on another forum I found out that they had purchased Model 1888 Mannlichers from Austria, and made their own ammunition for them.

Here's the translated version of the page that has info about the Manxi Sia 1888 straight-pull:

Also including the original just in case:

Have attached the few images available there.

There's a book titled China's Small Arms of the 2nd Sino-Japanese War for sale on that site (http://chinesefirearms.com/ad2.html), but only the English version is available. Reviews have stated that the best version is the Chinese one, followed by the Chinese/English version, because the images are clearer and in color.
