Mannlicher M.95 Rifles and Carbines

Finland - M1895 Mannlicher Rifle, Stutzen & Carbine

For all data and details see Mannlicher M.95

Desperately needing weapons, Finland obtained among others approx. 2300 Austro-Hungarian Mannlicher M.95 type guns during the 1920's from an unknown source (purchase, trade or donation?). Most or all of these received the 'SA' Finn property stamp. The caliber remained 8x50R.
These weapons were eventually replaced with Finnish Mosin Nagant rifles, and the surviving Mannlichers were sold/traded reportedly to Bulgaria in 1936. An 'SA' marked M95 is very rare find.
