From "RussianBlood":

Here is a list of reference sites on the Steyr M95 series of rifles and carbines. Hopefully putting these all in one place will help all the new owners of these fine straight pulls get answers to their questions. But we are always here to help if you don't find what you're looking for.

Here's a link to a very good reference book on the Mannlicher rifles. It was rated A+ by Gunboards.com

First time to chat room, as I was directed to this site, so I could fine out about the rifle my mother-in-law gave to me. She said that it was an antique and worth a lot of money, but I now have several sites to gather information from. It is a long 30" barrel Steyr stamped with "S" and has a sling and attached bayonet(see attached pictures). I have more pictures if anyone is interested. A local gun person directed me to this site. I am not a gun person, so all the links have helped me to understand what rifle I have. I may consider selling at a later date after I finish research.

As an M95 owner, I nominate this for a sticky. Anyone else?

There is a fix for the heavy trigger out there, it involves replacing the trigger sear spring. Here's a link for that, it's pretty easy and cheap: http://www.ryngate.org/M95/spring.html

I tried the spring change and it made a huge difference!
I haven't fired the rifle yet but the trigger has gone from "pulled it off target and it still hasn't fired" to something reasonable.
I generally am an opponent of dry-firing old bolt-actions, but had to test the repaired rifle for function.
