The Night Sight was a WW1 accessory to the M.95 rifle. The rear sight attachment is a small brass plate that secures under the rear sight leaf. The front sight attachment is a device that clamps around the M.95's own front sight base.

|M1895 knife bayonet. 360mm overall, 248mm blade length. Grips held by rivets and spanner nuts. Steyr made bayonets stamped 'OEWG', Budapest made
bayonets stamped 'F.G.GY.'. Original bayonets were not serial numbered.|
Auxiliary front sight on top of the muzzle ring. This compensated for the change in point-of-impact caused by firing the Stutzen with the bayonet fixed. The effect was much more marked in the short-barrel Stutzens than the full-length rifles. Some experts do not accept the change in point-of-impact reasoning, however they do not provide an alternate explanation for the muzzle ring sight.
