MANNLICHER SCHOENAUER SPORTING RIFLES RIFLES: BOLT ACTIONS, PRE-WWII The M1924 is properly known as the "Sequoia Importing Co." model because of a San Francisco company that ordered 1,000 units in .30-06 cal. for sale in the U.S. Apparently, these rifles did not sell well, and several of them were returned to Steyr where they were re-stamped 7.62x63mm cal. on the receiver ring. By 1933, Sequoia listed the .30-06 as the M1925 indicating that the changeover must have taken place rapidly. Meanwhile, the Steyr Company began chambering the basic M1924 action in six assorted calibers (7x57, 7x64, .30-06, 8x60S, 9.3x62, and 10.75x68) and marketing the improved rifle as the M1925. This was in addition to their continued production of the M1903, M1905, M1908, and M1910, and other chamberings were available on special order.
Starting with the M1925, Steyr began to engrave the caliber on the receiver ring, as it is standard in all Post WWII models. A Mannlicher-Schoenauer with the caliber engraved upon the barrel has been rebarreled by a European gunsmith and reproved by the local proof authority.
A proper Mannlicher-Schoenauer will have either no caliber marking on the receiver, as caliber was assigned via model only, or that caliber will be engraved upon the receiver ring as the final line in the description. For example, KAL 7x64. If the caliber is engraved or stamped upon the barrel only, the rifle was rebarreled by a gunsmith.
