M95 mannlicher = Austriancorrection on 'B' clips. I note all have a nazi swastika in circle beneath a waffenampt eagle. WW2 german mark for sure. How so if a M95 mannlicher ??????
Seen many cases of 8x56r for sale lately?M95 mannlicher = Austrian
German stampings are correct
Clips are not rare. Every case of M95 ammo comes with ammo in clips.
The Austrians manufactured their own 8x56R (and clips) until the Anschluss with Germany in 1938. The M95/30 was the standard rifle of the Austrian Bundesheer, and the Germans continued to manufacture ammunition until the plans for absorbing the Bundesheer into the Wehrmacht were finalized. Austrian units we re-armed with German weapons, with the M95s going to secondary use or sold off to Bulgaria.Germany manufactured ammo for the M95 in the late 30's for their allies of the former A-H Empire.
Seems as though Germany made their own clips, but packets of Nazi marked ammo will have a hodge podge of clips with every marking imaginable. Looks like they recycled clips from existing stockpiles.
