Steyr 1912 rebarreled after WWII to .308?

Post by Arminius »

Hello!

Somebody offered me a Steyr 1912, which - his talking - was adapted in 1961 for the NATO cartridge, but was never issued, and is in beautiful condition. Bore "unused".

What do you all think? Ever heard of such rifles? It´s quite long, no carbine / Karabiner.

Thanks in Advance, Hermann

Yes. Many are even marked 1912/61.
