    The rifle concerned is the Austro-Hungarian M1895 Mannlicher Steyr-it is not a French Berthier-the Mannlicher designation refers to the magazine system whereby the ammunition clip is inserted into the weapon and forms part of the feed system-this was a common feature of a number of late 19th century rifles including the German Reichscommission G1888, the Italian Carcarno M1891 etc .
