    Yugoslavian M.95 rework

    Ran across this Steyr M.95 repetier stutzen (I believe that's the configuration) over the weekend. It is in the original 8x50r. The seller claimed it belonged to his grandfather, and that it had been in his family for as long as he could remember. I bought it thinking it was possibly an original Great War example, but when I got it home, I really started looking at it, and a few things started to come to light.
    The blued bolt was the first thing that kind of dawned on me first. Then I saw what appeared to be Cyrillic type stamping in the wood. There is no Austrian eagle, barrel bears no serial number or date of acceptance. It has a rifle front sight.
    I then took it apart, and that is when I found the Yugoslavian crown over 'T' and crown over 'H' proofs. Two numbers I assume to be inventory numbers are on the bottom of the barrel and receiver, as can be seen in the pics. They match.
    Buttplate bears an old old unit mark, 'TR', which I believe may mean 'telegraphenregiment'.
    The Yugo proofs on the barrel explain the Cyrillic characters on the wood and the later number stamped on the stock, which did not appear 'Austro-Hungarianicon' when I first saw it.
    As I understand it, the M.95 was given to Yugoslaviaicon after the Great War as reparations. Some were converted to 7.92, while M.95s in the original 8x50r were issued to the gendarme.
    While I'm a tad disappointed this is not a Great War time capsule, I'm actually pretty excited to find out some history behind this one. I don't think I've ever run across an example such as this. Enjoy the pics!

    Just found this..looks like the remnants of the triangle mark used at Yugoslavian arsenals for reworks.

    I don't know why the original caliber was retained on these, I'm guessing there was lots of 8x50r still about, and was relegated to non combat type..police, train units, etc.
    As to the type of police force, again, I do not know. I only saw reference to gendarme.
