7/14/20 - This is an original Austrian Steyr M1895 bolt action rifle, chambered in 8x56mm. This gun was used throughout WW1 by the Austrian army and even used during WW2. What made this rifle unique is its straight bolt pull-back design. This example is in excellent condition. It has retained almost all of its finish - just a few handling marks here and there. All matching. Functions properly. The wood stock is excellent, but it may have been lightly sanded. Comes with an original sling. The bore has decent rifling but heavy frosting in the grooves. C&R eligible.
