I have show this before, a M 93 action in 9,3x53R Finland
must be one of the rifles captured in WW 1 from Rumania and than completly reworked at the steyr factory for the 8x50R mannlicher service cartridge and clip.
ended in finland after WW 2 where it was rebored for the 9,3x53R.

One I photographed for a buyer in the US at a Bisley show:-
















Had a tang sight at one time.



This now resides in the US and has accounted for several Whitetail deer.

Lancaster
Thanks for posting the photos. I have been looking for a good photo of a Mannlicher with the MS style bolt handle. I think it looks better on the Mannlichers than the MS.

When I saw the title "Model 92 Archive", I thought I would be seeing a whack of lever actioned rifles. I should have known, seeing the poster's name, that Winchesters were not being displayed.
Nice surprise, though - very nice. TKS.

Sarg I find that for the most part the early Steyr's are real bargains in England. And have been that way for awhile.

Yes mate I suppose, but NZ dollar & the fear of way over the top shipping keeps me from biding more, but on a fair few of these & a Schoenauer or two I was the under bidder by only a few pounds !

On the other side you told me you would have got more, so I was always out of luck.

I did miss a beauty you sold a (A&N I think) back in the day you could of sent it straight to me, been kicking myself ever since LoL !

Any way well done you have some beautiful rifles, really Alaska seems to be full of them !

Do you hunt with them at all ?

A 65" moose taken in Alaska 2013. 10 day float hunt, 1913 G.E. Lewis .404 Jeffrey. Now that I own a larger caliber than 6.5 MS I'll be taking my MS 1893 also.
