The Bloke, with the help of the chap's handy hands, takes a detailed look at the Swiss Karabiner 93, a Mannlicher straight-pull with basically the same action as an M95 Steyr. This is the only Swiss straight-pull that is Austrian rather than Swiss.

Chambered in 7.5x53.5 GP90 - a smokeless (not semismokeless) cartridge, they served from 1895 to around 1905, before being replaced by a Schmidt-Rubin type design. Because they had some design flaws.
