Steyr Mannlicher M1888-90
Steyr Mannlicher M1888-90 – 8x50mmR Mannlicher
After the introduction of the French Lebel 1886 in 8 mm, the Austrians found themselves in a position of subjugation because their rifle regulation was still the Mannlicher 1886 11mm caliber. It was then decided to develop a new ammunition similar to the French, and so the Mannlicher 1888 model 8x50R caliber black powder was born. A total of approximately 290,000 copies were produced from the Arsenal OEWG Steyr (Österreichische Gesellschaft Waffenfabrik Werndl in Steyr).
In 1890, after the introduction of the smokeless powder and corresponding ammunition, the rear sight was modified by applying two plates to uphold their calibration from 300 to 1800 steps (225-1350 m) on the left-hand scale and from 2000 to 3000 steps (1500 – 2250 m) in the right graduation and became the 1888-90 model. Many of these rifles were taken by the Italians as war booty in 1917 and subsequently deployed in the Second World War. The 1888/90 model was also officially delivered to Bulgaria, Greece and Hungary, but also used in the Chilean Civil War of 1891.

FEG G.98/40 – 7.92x57mm Mauser
The Gewehr 98/40 was the last in a line of Mannlicher turn-bolt rifles manufactured at Fegyver És Gépgyár of Budapest. It was based on the earlier Puska 35M in 8x56mmR, the standard service rifle of the Hungarian Army. A shortage of Kar98k rifles in the Wehrmacht resulted in modification of the 35M as a substitute-standard. The rifle was re-chambered to 7.92x57mm Mauser, a Mauser-type staggered-column box magazine fed by stripper-clips replaced the en-bloc Mannlicher system, the bolt handle was bent, a M98-pattern bayonet lug was fitted, and the sights altered to resemble those of the Kar98k. It was adopted into German service as the G.98/40, and in Hungarian service the rifle was designated Puska 43M.

Hemburg M95 Long Rifle – 6.5x53mm Mannlicher
In 1895, the Royal Netherlands Army adopted a variant of the Mannlicher M.1893 produced for Romania, which was in-turn developed from the German . This was a conventional turn-bolt action feeding from a Mannlicher 5-round magazine loaded with en-bloc clips, chambered in 6.5x53mmR. It featured a 28.5″ barrel, one-piece stock and half-length handguard.
Two carbine variants were produced, No.1 and No.3 (see discussion page). Initial production was at Waffenfabrik Steyr beginning in 1895, however in 1904 licensed production began at Hembrug Zaandam in the Netherlands; roughly 470,000 rifles were produced. It served the Dutch Army for 47 years, due to the lack of funds to replace it.
The Hembrug M95 can be seen in the following:
