Nice find! It's rather uncommon to find a Steyr made Stutzen, especially one that early! It's also completely original, with the original early rear sight, rear sling swivel, cocking piece, and handguard. The buttplate unit marking is a nice touch too. 5th Pioneer Battalion?
The rear sight numbers are very interesting-any one else with an 1897-dated piece have a similar numbered rear sight?
