I picked up a Steyr M95 but I can't seem to figure out what year it was made.
Yeah, looks like the original proof date of "1X" was stamped over, presumably when it was re-chambered to 8x56R in '36.
Also since we all know 8x56r is too fucking expensive and 8x50r is nonexistant here's a cheat code if yours is 8x56r
It will safely chamber, headspace and fire 7.62x54r, remember to clean it.
OP here, I know it was converted in 1936 but I dont know what year it was made. The people I bought it from told me 1908 but I didn't think so.
Also I reload for 8x56r so its not so bad for me.
I have an Austrian M. 95, I too suffer from this problem. Wish they would have left the original date marks.
So some uro accidentally a 9 and now you have forgottenweapons fodder.
Wonder how much you can make off of it on gunbroker
