As this is the rifle our forebears fought with in the Armies of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the First World War, usually every Austrian shooter owns one of these. Although they are not renowned for being super accurate, they stood the test of time from the beginning of the 20th cent. to after the end of WWII. They were used in WWII by Bulgaria, Romania and other Balkan states and also still partly by the German Army and police forces. Here in Austria you pay around 190 Euro for this rifle. (Bolt action rifles are free to buy without any special gun permit in Austria)
Greetings from overseas, S.
