    I saw this pic on another site with no caption. Both men carry what very much appears to be M91/24 Italian Carcanos... which are not consistent with the helmets and other uniform gear. Since the M91/24 wasn't adopted until 1924, that pretty much eliminates a WW1 scene. The front soldier also carries what appears to be an Italian fighting knife beside his bajonet. Could this be a scene from a movie?

    Okay! The rifles must have gone through an Austrian army repair depot. The bolts are not correct for this type. That and I didn't ID the rear sights right.

    I STILL didn't get it right! :( Those are Steyr (or Budapest) M.95 rifles. I've no excuse for that since I have several of each 3 steps from where I sit typing. :confused: Might be time for a carbonated beverage and get off the internet for a bit! :eek::D
