Yugoslavia did rebarrel some Steyrs into 7.92 Mauser, as the M95M Stutzen Rifle (NOT a carbine, it has the rifle sights and stock hardware).
This was due to war reparations after WWI, and they did not want to have to field rifles in dissimilar calibers. The M95M was intended for Engineers and other non-frontline troops. It has the short barrel like the carbine, with the bolt and magazine modified for the Mauser round. The magazine has the clip permanently afixed and the bottom of the magwell is capped off.

You think 8X56 in this light platform kicks...? The 8mm Mauser kicks harder!

Hard to find these now. Mine was stolen - I hope the thief tried to use the wrong ammo in it......

My current M95 is in 8X56 Hungarian - I reload for it, using new brass. The big .330 bullets are more expensive, so I shoot it on rare occasions.

I have an 8mm German Mauser & it doesn't seem to kick as bad. I would wonder what it would be like in a M-95 converted to 8mm Mauser ?

This thread got me thinking about these old rifles I used to have , & I found some ammo, 8x56R, that I still have leftover !
