The Model M (M for Mannlicher design, as rival to the "Mannlicher-Schönauer Stutzen" model) was included in the Mauser product range from 1914 to 1946. This light, easy to handle rifle was only provided with standard, medium and short actions and in 9 x 57 caliber or smaller. Amongst five standard versions, the M Stutzen with short actions are very rare.
(S for Stutzen German for short rifle). This short rifle was on the market at the same time as the Model M in 7 standard versions each with a 50 cm long barrel. Significantly more of this model were produced than of the M Stutzen. The short versions are also the rarest here.
