The Wanzl rifle was a breechloading conversion of the M1854 & M1862 Lorenz rifle. The Austro-Hungarian Empire used the Wanzl as their service rifle until they had enough M1867 Werndl-Holub rifles to arm the military.

The rifle was a lifting-block breechloader chambered for the 14×33mm Wanzl rimfire cartridge. The Austrians converted a total of 70,000 Lorenz muskets to Wanzls.
