This is not perfect but there is something very pleasing about this very interesting rifle. The barrel is in excellent condition with all bluing as original. The main body is very good apart from three patches of pitting. The bolt is in good condition having been fully serviced. The wood is considerably worn with a lot of minor damage however it has a satisfying patina and records some of its history. All markings are consistent with its history - manuf 1918, issued to the Hungarian Army, converted to 8 x 56R in the 30's in Austria then possibly issued to Bulgarian Police after WW2.
