Large number of Serbian M1899 and M1910 Mauser rifles were captured by the Austro-Hungarian forces in Serbia in 1914-15. Captured rifles were issued to 2nd line units in unaltered condition, with captured 7x57mm Mauser ammunition. The rifles were designated '7mm M.14'.
Oberndorf made M1910 rifles carry a cyrillic side rail legend: 'ORUZHNA FABRIKA MAUZERAD OBERNDORF'. Samples with original German-style markings can be found.
