Маузер Маннлихера

The authorities in the UK have uncovered a cache of illegal German Mauser rifles make by Steyr. It seems there was a huge cache of 25,000 rifles smuggled into Belfast in 1914 during something called the “Home-Rule Crisis”.
For those new to Mauser rifles, you will notice the age of these weapons by the fact they have straight, as opposed to turned-down, bolt handles. And the magazines are single-stack that use en-bloc clips that drop out of the bottom hole after the last round is stripped from the clip

ну подумаешь, Маннлихер, Маузер, Австрия, Германия...
какая разница, да?
но вообще кто-то хорошо "поднял" антиквариата. Жаль только что в лучшем случае все это добро будут попилено в ММГ, а в худшем - отправлено в металлолом...
