Landes Gendarmerie Kommando Steiermark
Carbines with the markings of Steiermark have been found to usually have one of two marking configurations. The first group has the Gendarmerie markings on the bottom of the trigger housing, with no other parts stamped with any other numbers or markings.
The second group have the Gendarmerie markings on the bottom of the trigger housing, and the entire serial number stamped in the slingwell, in the underside of the handguard and etched on top of the bolt.
The majority of carbines used by this state have the original GI parts appropriate for the carbine manufacturer, with the exception of many with an adjustable rear sight and rotary safety.

The inventory numbers are still being evaluated to determine the highest number. If a carbine with the Steiermark Gendarmerie markings is in the USA, it was returned by Austria to the U.S. Army and turned over to the Civilian Marksmanship Program in 2008. These carbines have no import marks.
