Dutch M1895 Cavalry Carbine

Dutch Model 1895 Mannlicher Cavalry Carbine. This is an early 1897 Steyr Produced carbine and is maker marked on the side of the receiver. This version has the short handguard, side mounted sling swivels and protective wood side block on the left side of the magazine housing for use with mounted cavalry troops. Metal finish is blued with wear and a fantastic patina only found on these classic old military firearms from decades of use and then a half century or more of warehouse storage.  The hardwood stock shows marks from military use and has a very nice HEMBURG cartouche present on the left side. Should be a really nice shooter as the bore has very good rifling with smooth lands and grooves. Non Matching bolt, but matching numbers on the rest of the rifle. Not import marked.

Cal 6.5x53mm with Good bore
