Looking for info on a Steyr 1907 Mannlicher-Schönauer Y:1903

I'm new to the post and website and hope to find some help in getting some info on the rifle I have. From the research I have done it looks like it is a Mannlicher-Schönauer Y:1903 carbine that was probably a Greek military weapon. It has Steyr 1907 on the side of the receiver and a crest or symbol on the top. Its caliber 6.5X54. I've attached some photos. Can anyone shed more light on this weapon and if I am in the ballpark?

Thanks!

It looks like you have a cut-down/sporterized Carbine, originally made in 1907.

Lotsa info here: http://www.hungariae.com/Mann03.htm

Thanks PetahW,

Yes, lots of good info in there on the history. Looks like my stock was originally a long rifle and cut down as you said then installed on a carbine. The swivels are not on the side as the carbine's picture shows. Although that may have been one of the modifications implemented in the 1914 version so it may be the original stock cut down. Also the bolt handle on mine is the "butterknife" style.

I cleaned it up and the bolt operates silky smooth.

Any guess to its value? I'm going to sell it and wondering if anyone has an idea.

Thanks!
