    Default Mannlicher barrels.

    Guys,
    Out of curiosity, did Mannlicher manufacture military weapons with the 'candy twist' barrels?
    By which I mean, the barrel was forged out of octagonal (?) section metal and then twisted giving the effect of a spiral along it's length?
    It's a feature of their current hunting weapons and I wondered if it applied to their older military products?

    You can just make out what I mean from the pic below......
