During the early parts of WWII the Nazi’s acquired large numbers of Md. 95 Steyr Carbines. The Nazi’s issued the carbines in large quantizes to Werhrmacht secondary line troops. The Md.95 Steyr Carbine saw service in WWII with the Bulgarian and Romanian Armies. Many partisan fighters in Nazi over run countries also used the Md.95 Carbine. The Md.95 Carbine also found it’s way into the hands of African guerrillas in the 1970’s. The Carbine was used by some post WWII European nations well into the 1960’s. The M1895 is unusual in that it employs a straight-pull bolt action, as opposed to the more common rotating bolt-handle of other rifles.
