I have just inherited an oldish Steyr-Mannlicher 'L' in .308. Seems to be in fairly good condition - heavily used, but more or less looked after (bore could have been kept cleaner).
I've not come across or used one of these before, and the bolt is confusing me, so I'd be grafetul for explanation/advice.
From what I can make out, you can partially 'uncock' the bolt, and if you pull the trigger, it will snap forward and fire. What is the purpose of this? Seems to be asking for trouble.
Any insight and advice on howe best to use this rifle would be very much appreciated. It does have a rather nice set trigger, which will take a bit of care getting used to.
