Description

A classic Mannlicher sporting rifle in a classic calibre, 6.5 x 54mm. Excellent overall condition.

Date of Manufacture 1926

Like most of the 6.5mm’s from Europe, the 6.5×54 Mannlicher was developed during the late 1880’s as a military cartridge, although it very quickly gained popularity as a sporting cartridge. The 6.5×54 Mannlicher is essentially a rimless version of the 6.5×53.5R Dutch and Romanian Mannlicher and at least 2 headstamp variations below were made from 6.5×53.5R cases with the rim turned down. The 1903 Mannlicher-Schönauer rifles and carbines were the last designs by Ferdinand Ritter von Mannlicher before his death in 1904. Mannlicher-Schönauer rifles and carbines were exclusively manufactured at Oesterreich Waffenfabrik Gesellschaft Steyr in Steyr, Austria and have been described by many as one of the world’s finest rifles.
