Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgWith the takeover of Austria by Nazi Germany in 1936 a large number of Mannlicher rifles came into their possession. These were sold off to Germany’s allies such as Bulgaria which took possession of thousands of M95/30 rifles. This ammunition was produced in 1938 and has the Nazi eagle headstamp.
