Anyone have pictures or info on military rifles with mannlicher (full length) stocks? I saw a gew 88 converted to carbine length w/ a mannlicher stock and though it looked awesome. Just curious to see others.

Thanks.

P.S. I am not interested in sporting rifles at all, so please refrain from indulging info on those.

Only bump out of curiosity.

The 1894 Swedish Mauser Carbine was the one I've always lusted over. 6.5x55 of course. From what I've learned over the years, a few were imported starting in the early 1960's. Then in dribs and drabs over the years. They weren't part of the masive flood of cheap Swedes the came to the US in the mid 90's. At that time they were still $400+ when standard Infantry rifles were being sold for less than $100. Haven't seen one in years, but wouldn't be surprised if the street price had doubled or tripled.
