For anyone that’s interested here is a link to a French forum that discusses the M94 bused by the French military in 1914-1918.
All in French of course.
The link is from a post on the Great War Forum by Keith_history-buff., so credit to him for posting.

Yes–“carabine” has a diff meaning in French: “rifle,” as in: “La Longue Carabine.” Read “Last of the Mohicans” again.
But it doesn’t look like a rifle to me. It has a carbine butt stock and looks like a carbine forearm to me–there’s no rifle forearm cap (zoom in on the photo).
