Hi Sikamick. Would any of these rifles be available and maybe Tmc John could make a few enquiries as one would make an excellent service rifle if a person was to apply for one. Shooter/mick.

If you don't mind standing there making bang noises, it'll be fine.

The ammunition for this fine old beast is 8x56R.

There is NO, read it again, NO ammunition available for this gun.

Anywhere.

It is NOT the same as the more common 8x56 Mannlicher-Schoenauer, a hunting cartridge that is still made by RWS in Germany and Sellier & Bellot. THAT is a rimless case - the Hungarian case is rimmed [the R].

In the event that you eventually get to re**** in the RoI, you'll also have to cast your own lead bullets using a custom made mould - there are no off-the-shelf bullets in the correct .329".

You might find one that has been converted to 8x57 in the late '30's - the same as the German round. That is only restricted.

Don't let me put you off, though.

Not sure where you're located, but .329" projectiles (.330's from Grafs) are plentiful - http://www.grafs.com/retail/catalog/...categoryId/925

BuffaloArms carries a variety of .329" http://www.buffaloarms.com/browse.cf...tid=427&step=2

Or, Lee makes a .329" casting mold - http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct...tNumber=941952

You can also cast .338". Lee makes a bullet sizer to re-size .338" to .329" http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct...tnumber=496681

As to the 8MM Mauser, only the M.95M and M.95/24 were converted to 7.92x57. They are much less common than your standard converted 8x56R, M.95.


Until you can re****, you've had it, as I said.
