    Could that be a DUTCH HEMBRUG 1906 carbine, known as the Dutch M95?





    A Danish M1893 would likely be referencing a Danish Krag. Those I believe were chambered in 6.5 x 55, although it was a rimless cartridge, [Krags were chambered in a lot of calibers].

    Some pictures would be help if I guessed this wrong.

    Default Not HEMBURG its HEMBRUG

    The Dutch Mannlicher, also known as the M.95 (Model 1895), was the service rifle of the Armed forces of the Netherlands between 1895 and 1945 which replaced the obsolete Beaumont-Vitali M1871/88. At first it was produced by Steyr for the Dutch, but after 1904, production took place under license at Hembrug Zaandam in the Netherlands. It was based on the earlier Mannlicher 1893 Model that was submitted to and won the Romanian rifle trials. The M1893 was itself a somewhat modernized version of the German Gewehr 1888. Both Dutch and Romanian rifles fired the same rimmed 6.5×53 mmR cartridge often referred to as "Romanian" or "Dutch 6.5". The Dutch issued about 470,000 M.95s. Its cartridge also saw limited success as a sporting round, including use by the elephant hunter W. D. M. Bell.

    The 6.5x53R was a sort of a rimmed version of the ubiquitous 6.5X54 Mannlicher-Schouenauer and this was the round that W. D. M. Bell (Karamojo Bell) used even on elephants.

    Got one. I collect WWI rifles and this one was cheap. No ammo for it. Good news is cases can be formed from .303 British. I haven't published it yet, but I have an essay nearly ready to go on my blog about forming cases, with pictures. It ain't nearly as hard as it might sound.

    They are fun. Very comfortable to shoot and a little less horsepower than a 6.5x55 Swede. Can be used for enemies of the Republic, deer, moose and elephant if you can shoot as well as and have ice water in your veins like Walt Bell. (The ice water and Walt Bell part only applies to shooting elephants.)

    Value: Mine cost me $250.00 and it's old; C&R rules apply. Besides, ammo for shooting is non-existant. (Collector ammo too expensive to shoot and not reliable.) However, mine is fairly used. No extreme pitting, but finish is blotchy. Looks like it had acne as a kid. The rifle is somewhat unknown. However, one must have en bloc clips to shoot it as a repeater. They are available, but vary in price depending where. I believe the rifle version is a little more sought. Fun, if one likes that sort of thing - as I do.

    I'm not really a professional gunfighter, but I used to play one in reality.
