A clear identifying feature of the Steyr M1895 rifle series is the stacking pin that protrudes forward on the left side of the rifle, originally used to stand rifles up against each other in the field - 8x56mmR Mannlicher

The Steyr-Mannlicher M1895 was an Austro-Hungarian bolt-action rifle, developed and designed by Ferdinand Ritter Von Mannlicher. It featured a straight-pull bolt-action feeding from single-column magazine fed by en-bloc 5-round clips. The long rifle featured a 30.1" barrel, and the carbine a 19" barrel. Both rifle and carbine featured a single-piece stock with full-length handguard. It fired the 8x50mmR cartridge. The rifle was produced at Österreichische Waffenfabriks-Gesellschaft, Steyr, from 1896-1918, and Fegyver és Gépgyár Rt. ("Arms and Machine Manufacturing Company") in Budapest from 1897-1918. Over 3,000,000 rifles were produced, roughly 75% at Steyr. Bulgaria purchased many M95s, beginning in 1903. It was the primary battle rifle of the Austro-Hungarian Landwehr and the Bulgarian Army during World War I, and continued to serve the postwar Austrian, Hungarian, and Bulgarian armies.

During the latter half of the 1920s, Mannlicher developed a more powerful cartridge, the 8x56mmR and Austria converted many existing rifles and carbines beginning in 1930, and Hungary followed suit in 1931. Austrian conversions are referred to as M95/30, and Hungarian conversions as M95/31. Rifles converted to 8x56mmR had a large "S" stamped on the barrel shank. Many M95s were captured by Yugoslavia and Greece during World War I, and in 1924 both countries began converting these to 7.92x57mm Mauser. The modifications consisted of a new 23.5" 7.92x57mm barrel with Mauser-type tangent-leaf sights, and the magazine was modified to allow conventional loading with a stripper clip. Conversions were done at FN-Herstal and Waffenfabrik Steyr, and domestically in Yugoslavia. These rifles are referred to as M95/24 in Greek service and M95M in Yugoslavian service.

During World War II the M95 was issued to Nazi German police forces, and also saw action with many partisans in Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, and Italy.

Steyr Mannlicher M1888-90

Austro-Hungarian Steyr Mannlicher M1888-90 - 8x50mmR Mannlicher

After the introduction of the French Lebel 1886 in 8 mm, the Austrians found themselves in a position of subjugation because their rifle regulation was still the Mannlicher 1886 11mm caliber. It was then decided to develop a new ammunition similar to the French, and so the Mannlicher 1888 model 8x50R caliber black powder was born. A total of approximately 290,000 copies were produced from the Arsenal OEWG Steyr (Österreichische Gesellschaft Waffenfabrik Werndl in Steyr).

In 1890, after the introduction of the smokeless powder and corresponding ammunition, the rear sight was modified by applying two plates to uphold their calibration from 300 to 1800 steps (225-1350 m) on the left-hand scale and from 2000 to 3000 steps (1500 - 2250 m) in the right graduation and became the 1888-90 model. Many of these rifles were taken by the Italians as war booty in 1917 and subsequently deployed in the Second World War. The 1888/90 model was also officially delivered to Bulgaria, Greece and Hungary, but also used in the Chilean Civil War of 1891.

Hembrug M95

Hemburg M95 Long Rifle - 6.5x53mm Mannlicher

In 1895, the Royal Netherlands Army adopted a variant of the Mannlicher M.1893 produced for Romania, which was in-turn developed from the German Gewehr 88. This was a conventional turn-bolt action feeding from a Mannlicher 5-round magazine loaded with en-bloc clips, chambered in 6.5x53mmR. It featured a 28.5" barrel, one-piece stock and half-length handguard.

Two carbine variants were produced, No.1 and No.3 (see discussion page). Initial production was at Waffenfabrik Steyr beginning in 1895, however in 1904 licensed production began at Hembrug Zaandam in the Netherlands; roughly 470,000 rifles were produced. It served the Dutch Army for 47 years, due to the lack of funds to replace it.

The Hembrug M95 can be seen in the following:
