8x50R Austrian M1895 Mannlicher Straight-Pull – the original!

    In this video, Mike takes a look at an 8x50R M1895 Austrian Mannlicher straight-pull long rifle, and takes it out to 300m for a shoot. In the discussion, he talks about how you can keep an 8x50R fed despite there being no ammo available (hint – trimmed 7.62x54R brass), and describes how the Austrians loved their M95’s, but the Swiss hated their model 1893 cavalry carbines, which use basically the same action but with a detachable magazine, and busts some myths.

    Mike B

    Mike was lucky enough to go to a school with a 25 yard smallbore range, only 25 minutes from the centre of British shooting at Bisley, and had a firearms certificate before he had a driver’s license. Moving to a more gun-friendly country has allowed him to service his milsurp habit. He lives up in the mountains in Switzerland and vlogs at YouTube as Bloke on the Range.
