dotri 1967: LHO allegedly used an Italian Mannlicher Carcano in 6.5x52 caliber topped with a broken bargain basement 4 power scope. The Italian Carcano is a poorly made rifle. Austrian Mannlichers are extremely well made.
Jeremy B: My country (Netherlands) used this against the nazi,s in ww2
boom87462: i apologise for my ignorance but my uncle gave me his steyr yesterday, along with a little of the ammunition, (im pretty sure even the ammo is origional, i mean the copper is dark blue, and on all but two stripper clips there is orange rust powder) but, i was reading it gets complicated if the serial numbers are the same on the receiver, butt, barrle, and the ball on the bolt, mine is this, if someone can give me some help, ide really apreciate it, thanks!
betafreak39: @weaponeer wow you really know your crap dont you
18tangles: do any of you blokes know what model mannlicher rifle and calibre was used by the famed maneater hunter james corbett of the early 20th century.I cannot find what weapons he used and only once did he mention a mannlicher in his book. He is reputed to have shot 30 odd maneating tigers and leopards. thanks

67mustangreg: @weaponeer yes, i have orginal 30's nazi stamped ammo and the enblock clips. pretty hard to find, the clips were like 10 bucks each I think and the ammo was given to me. i have a vido of two of the carbines on my profile.
67mustangreg: I have three of these, bought them all last year when they went on sale for 60 bucks each. I've noticed that I have not seen any in good looking shape...all show signs of heavy use. but I like it that way. I even have the rare bayonet and frog for one.
