    Default Mauser Djurich 1880/07

    Found a photo on the lost bulgaria website with a soldier armed with a 7x57 Mauser Djurich 1880/07. Never seen photos of it in service and have only seen one in a museum in vienna. Just thought I'd share, and hif anyone has anymore pics i'd love to see!

ID:	368090Can you post the entire photo instead of the cropped version? Here is one of several I have of the 78/80 in service with Serbian troops during the 1885 war with Bulgaria.

    No, it will be one of my columns about the military rifle cartridges of various countries. In this case Serbia/Yugoslavia.
