#8x56r

MOST RECENT

This Mannlicher M1895 was made in Budapest, Hungary around 1917. It was originally chambered in 8x50R but was converted to 8x56R some time in the 1930's. The conversion was done in Austria by Steyr as indicated be the "S" on the reciever. The "S" indicated it had been rechambered to the new Spitzer cartridge. The designation after the conversion was M95/30

When you need something so loud that makes fireballs so big the new shooters in the lane next to you just can't even right now

Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of the greenhorns

Tremendous respect for the soldiers that used this in war. Straight pull bolt.

Friggin shoulder buster!

Finally got to shoot my M95/30 Steyr Mannlicher! I've had this gun for a year but never had a chance to shoot it due to the insane price of 8X56R. Something I noticed, I had some light strikes and hangfires, but those were due to the ammo being Nazi marked ammo from 1938. I also saw both the positives and negatives of the Mannlicher system. It's fast to load and a smooth mechanism BUT the clips act as the feed lips, positioning the cartridges to be picked up from the bolt. If the clip is deformed it won't feed properly. Honestly I think that's more of an issue now that it was in the 1910s as these clips were originally meant to be one time use. That's obviously not the case for any that are still remaining. (Note the M95 did not create this system of clip loading but its predecessor the 1886 straight pull rifle in a large bore blackpowder cartridge did). Still this is one of my all time favorite bolt action rifles and I still believe it's one of the best and most under appreciated. I also had a steyr 1912 handgun which would have been issued at the same time. #steyr #gunsofww1 #austrohungarianempire #8x56r #pewpewlife #pewpewprofessional #gunsofinstagram #milsurp #milsurprifle
