    Here's one that may stump you. I've found a used Mannlicher 1903 at a pawn shop. It has about a 23" barrel or so, half stock, and single trigger. Bolt is the classic style, so my first thought was some commercial Mannlicher-Schoenauer, but it also has a CREST! It looks like an anchor. I've been looking all over and the only anchor crest reference I can find is to certain Chilean Mausers. What is this thing?
