    Well, it's kinda of a bolt action

    A couple years back I picked up a bayonet thinking it was for a Vz24 I had just bought. Yeah, I was wrong. turned out to be for a M95 Styer. I hadn't heard of these before that. I've got a fascination with straight pulls. I'd only ever delt with a Swiss K-31.

    So I had been on the hunt for a M95 locally ever since, and ended up with this little guy today. A Budapest made M95 Stutzenkarabine in 8x56r.

    Cant say much about it yet, as I don't know much yet.

    I love the Budapest crest on those

    Here is a real nice Website that has tons of info on M95s

    My favorite subset of those m95s are the m95/24s & m95ms

    Great and informative web site. I could get lost reading the history
    Thanks for posting the link
    I love the M 95 for some reason

    Have both the rifle and carbine and found my carbine had been in Bulgarian service
    The carbine had a metal tag under the forearm on old style Bulgarian script.
    My co worker was a 1970's Warsaw Pact Bulgarian veteran and he translated
    It was a armorer's condition tag similar to the brass disks used by Sweden.
    It covered bore condition and other technical details for weapons in long term reserve storage
    He told me the rural police and forest wardens still used them in the 1960's.
    I also had a chance to fire a 8 mm conversion that was a war trophy bring back. The man that owned the farm where I hunted,, told me he found it sticking out of the water as they crossed a small stream in or near Austria 1945. He told me they were not high on the G.I. trading totem pole so he kept it.
    When fired it had a tremendous muzzle blast and blue flash.
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    Like Norton I have the rifle and a couple of carbines. I have only fired one of the carbines using some 30s dated 8X56R and I used the worse looking of that ammo.
    Still most all of it went bang. I latter picked up some Nazi production ammo for them in clips and original boxes, but never used it and a few boxes of new production
    ammo. The straight pull is interesting and different. Reminds me of the Swiss K rifle, but not as smooth as them. I will say the carbine kicked like a mule, I
    think it edges out the Mosin M44 in that category (LOL). Congrats on your find, nice addition to a collection and part of hsitory.
    Occam's razor, the simplest explanation will be the most plausible
