TheDzhoel: 0:40 "Produced 1895-1918" That is wrong, the long rifle version (the first
ones) in 8x50R are the ones built in those dates. The carbine was built
from the 1920's with production ending by the mid 1930's and re-chambered
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
Beaudidly: @Howie262 what is co pieing the Germans today?
Weaponeer: @hioncheesenips - many bolt actions are based on the Mauser action. just
not straight pull actions.
Beaudidly: now look where steyr developed their guns into!
Weaponeer: @boom87462 - sounds like you have an all matching rifle like in the video.
The 8x56r ammo is hard to get and not cheap. They stopped making it around
1939, and if you have the striper clip you can shoot the rifle, otherwise
it's a single shot rifle.
spazzz64: @weaponeer DAMN! You sir, know your stuff. I am quite impressed!
blt4speed: Hornady sells ammo for this rifle now $30 for 20 rds
Don Tripp: 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.
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.
spazzz64: first comment! isn't that what lee harvey oswald used to assasinate kennedy?
TAOFLEDERMAUS: At work I look at Google books/ Popular Science mags from the 40's-60's and
they had little ads in the back pages selling these, Mosin Nagants
(captured) etc for SO cheap, like $15.
Weaponeer: @Howie262 - this is a straight pull not a bolt action, so it's not a copy
of the Mauser 98 action.
betafreak39: @weaponeer wow you really know your crap dont you
Jeremy B: My country (Netherlands) used this against the nazi,s in ww2
45Automag: im lucky to have stuch a nice one all the ones ive seen hear have scraches
and dents all over them and thier numbers dont match i got mine numbers
matching wood clean and packed in cosmoline
Weaponeer: @67mustangreg - do you have the en-bloc clips to shoot them? I only have 2
of them, and I'm not even sure where they are right now, otherwise I would
do a range video on it as well. My ZB39 is also 8x56r
Weaponeer: @spazzz64 - Oswald used a 6.5 x 52 mm Italian Carcano M91/38 bolt-action
rifle (MADE ITALY) serial number C2766 loaded with Western Cartridge Co.
made 160 gr round nose bullets. it was purchased from Crescent Firearms,
Inc., of New York City, and was shipped to "A. Hidell" at post office box
2915 in Dallas, Texas
SanityShortage: used by the royal dutch army in 1940!
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
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!
Chase Howard: One of the Various coppies of the Mauser 98....... funny how everyone
