Anyone own one of these? I was fortunate enough to fondle a carbine, full length stock 30'06 and I must say that besides the $1400 price tag, I really fell in love with the rifle.

Sold one last year for $1100, 1938 mfg. G.I. bring back duffle cut in excellent condition in I think 8x56mm M.S.

Beautiful rifles for iron sight hunting out to about 300 meters but that's about it.

If the scope mounts are included $1,400.00 isn't too bad.

Back as a kid I recall looking at a Stoegers book and lusting after these rifles, course back then way out of my price range.
Any pictures?

I have one my great grandfather used in India. Bagged a Leopard with it, among other animals.....this was back in 1920 or 21. I'll get a picture of it.

I have a 1952 full-stock carbine in .30-06.

It's a sweet shooter once you get used to the butterknife bolt handle.

I have a 1980s Interarms Mark X mannlicher model with the butterknife bolt handle and set triggers. Beautiful rifle...I hate that it just sits in the back corner of my safe since I don't ever shoot it.

You can find a 1/2 price substitute with a Ruger M77 or No1 International. They even made a 10-22 with the full length stock.

Not sure if the picture came up in my previous post.

Full length m77's are nice, but they are not the same rifle that Hemingway carried on the pilar!

I have not had a MS but I did have a military greek ms that had been sported and converted from 6.5 greek to 257 roberts.
I got it cheap as the rotary mag is not happy with other than it's original cartridge case.
A litlle mill work on the magazine and it became a smooth, reliable and accurate shooter.

The MS bolt-action is reputed to be one of the finest every manufactured. And the rotary magazine is a beautiful design. I own several and every one is a work of art. I like the ones manufactured between 1903 and 1950 with the original bolt design. Beginning in 1952 you have the swept-back bolt handle. The most interesting one I own was converted to 257 Roberts by Johnson Automatics (an American company that produced semiautomatic rifles and machine guns during WWII).

Here is my M1905....



Has British proof marks. I can't remember the exact caliber, but my dad always said it's a 9mm. I also can't remember the mfg date.

I also had a Greek military MS. I sold it last year to a gentleman who's father had carried one in WWI (Greek army). It was nice, kinda felt like the rifle went full circle.

Ok. I'll pull the stock off. I think I remember seeing the caliber stamped under there.

Ok....here are some pictures...there is a 9 m/m stamped under the wood. All numbers match- bolt and stock too. 4th picture to the right is a +2, just the pic is upside down. Sorry for the crappy pix, I used my phones camera

Very cool.

9x56 mannlicher
That's a 250gr bullet at about 2150fpsmv
Typical velocity for big game cartridges of the time.
The full jacket 'solids' penetrate like mad at that speed.
The softs work like boat anchors on big ungulates and thin skinned dangerous game like the cats your grandfather went after in the good old days.

Excellent info, thanks, I appreciate it! Any idea what the +2 means? Just more hieroglyphics?
