DESCRIPTION: Very scarce Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes Mannlicher M.1888/1924 short rifle. Mannlicher M.1888 rifle was a standard infantry weapon of Austria-Hungary in the period of 1888-1917. During the Balkan Wars and World War One Serbia captured more than 50,000 Austro-Hungarian Mannlichers M.1888 and M.1888/90 rifles. When the new Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes was formed, it was decided to convert many captured rifles to 7.92 x 57 mm Mauser caliber and to shorten them to Mauser M.1924 length. Many Belgian and Yugoslavian companies took part in this project. This rifle was converted in Belgium, as indicated by markings on the receiver and chamber, "7.9 mm, P.V., B. BLINDEE, crown over R, star over H, flaming bomb over L in the circle". The bolt handle displays similar Belgian markings. Original Austro-Hungarian maker markings, "OEWG" are still on the receiver ring (Osterreichische Waffenfabriks-Gesellschaft, Steyr). Matching serial numbers (stamped on the receiver, bolt, stock, handguard and on the nosecap; other parts do not display any serial numbers). Barrel bands and buttplate show some assembly numbers. Bayonet lug is present on the left side of the front barrel band. All complete and in original military configuration. No import markings. Interesting early straight pull military rifle! CONDITION: Excellent, as arsenally modified and refurbished. 98%+ of blue is still present on the gun. Action is still very crisp. Bore is in low fine condition, with strong rifling. Solid stock with some minor handling marks. All the internal parts of the rifle are in fine condition, with no visible wear. All the markings and numbers on metal and stock are clearly visible. Scarce Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes Mannlicher M.1888/1924 Short Rifle in a very collectible condition! The rifle comes from my family member collection of military firearms (please, pay by check, money order, or bank wire transfer only). Serial# 17XX. Antique.

DESCRIPTION: Polish police Austro-Hungarian M.1895 Mannlicher carbine and bayonet. Both, the carbine and the bayonet were issued to the Silesian Voivodeship Police, as indicated by markings, "P. W. Sl." (Policja Wojewodztwa Slaskiego). The Silesian Voivodeship Police property markings are stamped on the left side of the carbine's buttstock and on the bayonet's hilt (please, see pictures). I have seen several Mannlicher M.95 carbines with such markings, but this is the first wz.1924 Mauser bayonet displaying "P.W.Sl."! The bayonet blade displays standard markings, "PERKUN", "WP" and Polish Eagle. Polish Mannlicher M.95 carbines were either issued with M.1895 Mannlicher bayonets, or with Polish manufactured Mauser bayonets (wz.1922, or wz.1924). This carbine has a bayonet lug arsenally modified for Mauser bayonet! This was originally Austro-Hungarian Mannlicher M.1895 infantry rifle. The chamber displays following markings, "W-n, Double Head Eagle, 17". The receiver ring displays a model designation, "M.95", and the maker's name, "Steyr". The right side of the receiver and chamber displays small Austro-Hungarian double head eagles. The gun was shortened and converted to carbine (short rifle) configuration at the Cracow arsenal in 1921. In 1920-s, many countries started conversion program of long World War One style rifles to short rifle configuration. It was commonly believed at the time, that next war would be much more mobile than the WWI, and thus would require shorter rifles. Poland followed the pattern by shortening almost entire inventory of its Mannlicher M.1895 rifles. The Mannlicher M.1895 carbines were initially issued mainly to the Polish cavalry, and later, to Polish police. During the Spanish Civil War, Poland supplied Franco's forces with 20.000 Mannlicher M.1895 rifles and carbines. Many of them ended up on the U.S. surplus market after 1959. The right side of the carbine buttstock displays Polish arsenal markings, "Kr.21" ("Zbrojownia Kraków 1921" = the Cracow Arsenal, 1921). These markings indicate that the carbine was converted and refurbished at the Cracow arsenal in 1921 (later, known as "Zbrojownia Nr. 4" = Arsenal No. 4). Polish arsenal manufactured front sights (different from the Austro-Hungarian sights - please, see pictures). Polish arsenal modified rear sights. Matching serial numbers on the receiver and barrel. Mismatched serial number on the stock. No serial numbers on other parts of the carbine. Two sets of sling swivels located underneath the stock, and on the left side of the stock. The carbine has a stacking hook on the left side of the nosecap. CONDITION: Fine. 90% of blue finish is still on metal. The balance is in white, mixed with occasional light patina. Solid stock with some handling marks and light dings. No cracks in wood. All the markings and numbers on metal are still visible. All the internal parts of the carbine are in fine condition, with no visible wear. The bore is in fine condition with strong rifling. Strong action. No import markings. The bayonet is in fair to good condition. The blade is nice, but the hilt has many dings and dents. The bayonet wooden grips show wear. The German (?) scabbard shows pitting.

DESCRIPTION: Scarce Polish army issue Mannlicher Berthier M.1916 infantry rifle. Many French rifles were brought to Poland by Haller's "Blue Army". Furthermore, Poland had purchased in France many thousand of Berthier and Lebel rifles during the Polish-Soviet War of 1919-1921. During the September 1939 campaign, most of these rifles were issued to the second line Polish troops (Obrona Narodowa = National Guard). The rifle was refurbished by one of the Polish arsenals. The right side of the buttstock displays Polish arsenal markings, "ZW. (...) . 36" (in a rectangular; refurbished in 1936). The stock displays also several smaller French, or Polish markings. Polish style serial numbers on the chamber and on the bolt. The rifle was manufactured by St. Etienne arsenal in 1917, as indicated by markings on the receiver and barrel. The left side of the receiver is marked, "St. Etienne Mle M16". The right side of the chamber displays the barrel maker markings and a date, "MAS 1917". The rifle is a World War One design with a five round Mannlicher type magazine. This model had replaced Berthier M. 07-15 rifle with a three round Mannlicher magazine. The capacity of the M. 07-15 magazine was found to be insufficient during the World War One battles, especially when compared with a German Gew.98 performance. Hence, the new model with a higher capacity magazine. Mismatched serial numbers (different numbers are stamped on the chamber, bolt, stock and trigger guard). The chamber does not display a Balle "N" proof. Bayonet lug on the barrel, near the muzzle. Ramp and leaf rear sight calibrated up to 2400 meter. One barrel band and a nosecap with a stacking hook. This model of rifle was manufactured with a short handguard, and with no provision for the cleaning rod. No import markings. Overall length is 51.50 inch. The barrel length is 32 inch. CONDITION: Fine, as refurbished by one of the Polish arsenals. 90-92% of blue finish is still present on metal. Most of the wear is on sharp edges of metal parts. Some finish is turning to brownish color (mainly on the magazine, trigger guard, nosecap and barrel band). The stock shows the usual handling marks, dings and light scratches. All the markings and numbers on metal are clearly visible. The bore is in very good+ to fine condition with strong rifling. The action works fine. All the internal parts of the rifle are in fine condition, with no visible wear. Scarce Polish army issue Mannlicher Berthier M. 1916 infantry rifle! The rifle comes from my family member collection of military firearms (please, pay by check, money order, or bank wire transfer only). Serial# 110XX.

Very Scarce Ministry of War Shooting Competition Prize Mannlicher Carcano M.1891 Rifle

Caliber: 6.5 mm x 52, rimless.

Price: $1175

Inventory # manc_0065

DESCRIPTION: Very scarce Mannlicher Carcano M.1891 'prize' rifle with a brass plate attached to the right side of the butt stock with the following wording: "VIII GARA GENERALE DI TIRO A SEGNO PREMIO DEL MINISTERO DELLA GUERRA" ("8th General Target Shooting Competition - Prize of the Ministry of War"). At the end of 19th Century Italian government established a system of hundreds of gun ranges with a sole purpose to promote marksmanship and prepare civilian population for national emergency. Participation was encouraged and the best shooters received 'prize' rifles, initially Vetterlis, and later, Carcanos. This is one of such 'prize' rifles. Similar rifles were described by Ron Azzi in his article, "Italian 'Prize' Rifles" published in The Military Rifle Journal in October 1999 (posted on gunboards.com). The rifle displays a nice cartouche on the left side of the butt stock with Crest of Savoy and following wording, "FABB. D'ARMI....TERNI 1934 XII". Matching serial numbers. The serial number on the stock seemed to be restamped at one point to match the number on the receiver, in the typical Italian manner. The receiver and barrel were made in Rome in 1918, as indicated by markings on the chamber, while the stock has Terni markings. This model of Carcano was built in 6.5 mm caliber with progressive rifling. Complete with an original cleaning rod. CONDITION: Fine, with 90% original blue finish still present on metal. The finish is worn mainly on the magazine and on sharp edges of other steel parts of the rifle. Some blue finish is starting to turn to brownish color. The buttplate shows some light patina. Fine bore with strong rifling. Strong action. All the internal parts of the rifle are in fine condition, with no visible wear. All the markings are clearly visible on metal and wood. Solid stock with numerous handling marks. No cracks in wood. No import markings. Interesting Mannlicher Carcano for the advanced collector of Italian rifles. Serial# ORK9XX.
