Dear all, I have a 6.5mm bolt action rifle model 1893 Steyr by westley richards & company made for walter lock company calcutta 26" barrel . Unfortunately bullets have been finished. I have searched all market here in rawalpindi/ isb but no one even knows about this calibre. The rifle is in very good condition and I want to use it for hunting and target shooting. Moreover there is also written on barrel (for.256 cartriadge) and it has clip feeding magzine of 5 bullets. Loose bullet will not b accepted by magzine. If anyone have knowledge about this old beauty , caliber and availabilty of ammunitition then pl. inform me I will be greatfull. I will also post the pictures soon. Regards

I have a Steyr M 1901 in 6.5mm , the rifle was made to order for my Grandfather and the stock was made as per the specs. Only 25 bullets are available with me and at the moment I dont want to part with those, however I have been told that approximately 200 are available with some gentlemen, I will let you know on confirmation.

I had read about this rifle long ago and had read a bit about it years ago.Well this is a very old rifle but however it is an excellent weapon.Very accurate and perfect for hunting.The bad news is that you wont find ammo for it....And another problem in this rifle is that you need clips to fire it it wont fire without he clips except in single shot mode like the M1 Grand.
