Stock is indeed near comical. Similar to my wood work ....:):):)
The action and double set triggers may be salvageable for a project for someone

I had missed your May 26th post. Very interesting.

That is about my favorite stock layout. I am not sure which "house style" to attribute it to, but the long-ish hand with the cap at that angle is Fraser/Jeffery looking. The finial at the nose of the comb as well. The forestock detailing and length as to the overall thinking of a British stocking.........

A friend has a Jeffery takedown on a M98 that is a near ringer for this. I missed a "no named" M98 that, again, was stocked very similar.

This is not a sporter but anyways very rare "bird":

http://jamesdjulia.com/auctions/view_lot_info.asp?lot=3147-346

"UNIQUE STEYR 8MM M87/88 MANNLICHER-SCHOENAUER RIFLE. SN 1. Cal. 8.15 mm Mannlicher-Schoenauer Experimental. An exceptionally nice, unique prototype M87/88 Mannlicher-Schoenauer straight-pull rotary magazine rifle made by Steyr, SN 1. Earliest pattern single lug Mannlicher straight-pull bolt system with rotating bolt head cocks on closing and is in the white as is the trigger, with the balance of the weapon having high polish blue. The unusually large diameter bolt handle has an ivory button inset at the rear. Undented magazine first prototype pattern of the famous Schoenauer rotary magazine with spring-loaded follower. The caliber is 8.15 mm, but the cartridge is an unknown rimless type with the same small diameter as the 6.5 mm Mannlicher-Schoenauer case body. Complicated flip-up rear sight is graduated to 2500 meters and proofed with a single "K". Beautiful prototype would be the centerpiece of any early Austrian weapons collection. PROVENANCE: Collection of Dr. Geoffrey Sturgess. CONDITION: Excellent. Bore very good to excellent, strong rifling grooves. Two-piece stock shows numerous light scratches, dings & dents, and previous refinishing. 4-53173 DW66 (8,000-12,000)"

Finnish gunmakers imported some Steyr m95 military surplus actions after the war and coverted them for finnish 7x53r, 8,2x53r and 9,3x53r calibers.
So far i have seen only one m95 in 7x53r for sale and one 9,3x53r with older (m88?) Steyr action.
Unfortunately i have no photos to share.

"So far i have seen only one m95 in 7x53r for sale and one 9,3x53r with older (m88?) Steyr action.

did you mean this unique rifle?








imho, this was one of the rumanian Mannlicher 93 that was captured by austro-hungarian troops in WW 1 and then changed by Steyr from 6,5x53R to 8x50R. if you compare the cartridges and complete different en bloc clips you still believe that only the steyr factory alone was capable to do this work. this rifle found the way after the war to finnland where it was converted to 9,3x53R again years later.
your idea with the M 88 was not bad because the M 93 was a modified Mannlicher M 92 ( the later M 95 Dutch rifle)and this M 92 was developt direct from the M 88. probably because Steyr had the machinery from making M 88 and was looking for something that can be made on this after the production ends.

what you showing here is a Mannlicher M 88-90, the 8mm small bore conversion of the original M 86 in 11,15x58R. because the 8x50R and the 9,3x53R having a very similar rim and base diameter there is no problem for a competent gunmaker.
this old M 86 Stutzen in 11,15x58R was sold by Widforss in Stockholm

"Mannlicher m 95, Steyr" in caliber 6,3x53r finnish:
http://www.pyssypuoti.fi/kauppa/product_details.php?p=1279

I think VALMET was the factory behind these conversions.

It seems that "Suomen metsästysmuseo" (The Hunting Museum of Finland) has many customized M95 Mannlicher in their collection. There seems to be even one small caliber shotgun.

You could find them with that search -machine:

I went to see a old gunsmith & see what he had for sale, I bought a few nice rifles & old hand guns .
Thought I had found a old English Steyr 95 Sporter (was after 92-95 Dutch type), but now see it is some thing else put together by B Woodward & Sons Birmingham, I may just rob the sights off it for one of my Lee Speeds if it is not of much value, any one know much about this model, I don't know the caliber, but says Nitro Proof on the side ?

noooo, you would not dare to do this?

from here I say its a Mannlicher 88 in 8x50R or .315 india and thats what this rifle was build for I suspect.

need the common clip for 8x50R
