CLASSIC BUDAPEST M95 8X56

£295.00

The Model 1895 Infantry Rifle (Gewher) was designed from the ground-up to fire the stronger smokeless-powder cartridges.  Forged, oil-quenched steel was used throughout. A full-length wooden stock covered almost all of the metal surfaces to make it soldier-proof. The strait pull bolt action and integral box magazine of the earlier Mannlicher design was retained. The bolt was so fast acting that German soldiers who used the rifle in WWII—having originally been trained on the turn-bolt Mauser—called the M95 the “Ruck-Zuck” (for Very Quick).

After 1930, most of these rifles were converted to fire the more powerful 8x56mmR round and arsenal reconditioned as model M95/34 carbines

THIS PARTICULAR RIFLE IS THE BUDAPEST EXAMPLE
