This bolt-action rifle uses the Bayard (aka Largo) pistol cartridge. Mechanically different from the earlier Destroyer Carbines, the overall size and appearance are maintained. This version of the carbine is similar to the mauser 1893 rifle, but it is not a mauser design. It was used by the spanish "Guardia Civil" a para-military police force.
