New Austrian M95 8x56R

  1. I got this at Big 5 tonight for $79.99, $83.66 out the door with a 20 oz Coke. As you can see it's a pretty nice rifle, until you open the bolt... *Refer to the "Lake O' Comsoline Pic*

    The stock is kinda beat up, and there is a LAKE of cosmoline in that joker. At the store I had to run a paper towel down the barrel with the cleaning rod from a MN 91/30 just to get enough cosmo out so I could see the lands and grooves. All the other rifles had some SERIOUS wear in the bore, but the one I brought home with me is about 99%.

    For $83.00 out the door, and the 20 oz coke :D, I can't say I did that bad.... OH and for you pic snobs out there.....

    This is the Lake O' Comsoline pic... and this is AFTER I wiped a crap load of it off while still at the store.

    The only thing I was kinda bummed about is that it didn't come with any of the extra goodies. No sling, no cleaning kit, oil can, ammo case etc... Kinda sucks, but once I get it cleaned up, we'll see how it shoots.

    This isn't a Turkish Mauser, *Damn you CG-49 Plankowner for getting me hooked on those rifles!!!!! :wink: * But for the price and the current price of 8mm ammo, it's a GREAT SHTF or B/O gun. It's light weight and with a straight back bolt, it's easy to operate. So far, I am pleased with the decision.

    Now for what you guys think... :roll: :D :lol:

    I think it's going on my wish list-looks a little bigger than an M44. I'll be waiting to see the range report.

  7. I was talking about the 8mmx56R that I found at Sportsman's guide for $23.00 a box. I KNOW that 8mm Mauser isn't compatible with this rifle, 8mmx56R kinda stands out. I think the reason I called it a Mauser at first is that the rifle was mislabled at the store. It was labled a mauser not a mannlicher.

    The good thing about this ammo is that it's boxer primed brass, reloadable. That's a good thing.
