Had the chance to pick up a set of two late war Mannlicher 1895, one being a near NOS condition Stutzenkarabiner where the proof date is stamped so poor one cannot read it (I suppose it should be 17 or 18), and a Rifle which has some traces of war, but still very nice, which is Wn18 proofed. The rifle is interesting in that it still has a N (for Nussbaum) stock that is non-jointed, plus it came with a GBA (GendarmerieBeschaffungsAnstalt) marked sling, which indicates it saw post WWII Police usage.

These become rare to turn up in condition like this, hence I thought I have to take them. I liked them so much, I took these pictures and thought should share them in here as well.

Andy, I concur - it is very light wood. Still, the N ahead of the magazine guard is proof for being Nussbaum. I suppose this late in war they might didn't bother to stain it perfectly.
