Post Dutch M95
Here are some pictures of my 1916 Dutch M95.

Caliber is 6.5x53.5mm R

The rifle has all matching numbers.

Except for cleaning the barrel I haven't changed anything about this weapon.

The story on this rifle is that it was used as a so called"wacht wapen", ("guard weapon"), meaning that the rifle was used for guard duty only at the army barracks.

This would explain the difference in quality between the wood and the brandnew barrel.

On the left side of the receiver you can find the place and date of production.
