    The Kingdom of Portugal bought about 12,500 6.5mm Mannlicher rifles and carbines from Steyr, the first batch was in 1896, for the Navy and Cavalry, and the remainder in 1898 for the Artillery.

    These rifles carry “CI” crests for Carlos I of Portugal with all matching serial numbers.

    In 1946 a few hundred of the Portuguese Mannlichers were adapted to fire the 5.6mm calibre (.22 Rimfire), for training purposes

    This is a rare military training rifle not very often seen in the UK.  It is one that is a must for collectors of military trainers.

    The bore is in very good condition.
