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

The Steyr-Mannlicher M1895 is an Austro-Hungarian bolt-action rifle, developed and designed by Ferdinand Ritter Von Mannlicher. It features a straight-pull bolt-action feeding from single-column magazine fed by en-bloc 5-round clips. The long rifle features a 30.1" barrel, and the carbine a 19" barrel. Both rifle and carbine feature a single-piece stock with a full-length handguard. It fires the 8x50mmR cartridge. The rifle was produced at Österreichische Waffenfabriks-Gesellschaft, Steyr, from 1896 to 1918, and Fegyver és Gépgyár Rt. ("Arms and Machine Manufacturing Company") in Budapest from 1897 to 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 the M95/30, and Hungarian conversions as the 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, Waffenfabrik Steyr, and domestically in Yugoslavia. These rifles are referred to as the 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

Repetiergewehr M1888/90, System Mannlicher - 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 was also used in the Chilean Civil War of 1891.

Hembrug M95

Hembrug / Mannlicher Geweer M. 95 - 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 a 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.

FEG G.98/40 - 7.92x57mm Mauser

The Gewehr 98/40 was the last in a line of Mannlicher turn-bolt rifles manufactured at Fegyver És Gépgyár of Budapest. It was based on the earlier Puska 35M in 8x56mmR, the standard service rifle of the Hungarian Army. A shortage of Kar98k rifles in the Wehrmacht resulted in the modification of the 35M as a substitute standard. The rifle was re-chambered to 7.92x57mm Mauser, a Mauser-type staggered-column box magazine fed by stripper-clips replaced the en-bloc Mannlicher system, the bolt handle was bent, an M98-pattern bayonet lug was fitted, and the sights altered to resemble those of the Kar98k. It was adopted into German service as the G.98/40, and in Hungarian service, the rifle was designated Puska 43M.
