Details

Made in Belgium, this unusual rifle is influenced by both Swiss, and British (Enfield) design. The breech is marked 'A. FRANCOTTE/A LIEGE' and has Liege proof marks. The umarked lock is retained by a single bolt. The bolster and hammer are of a Swiss pattern, closely resembling the Swiss Model 1851. The rifle has an octagonal chamber which is around 6 inches long. The long range rear sight is of an Enfield pattern, and graduated to 1200 yards. The bands and ram rod are also of Enfield pattern.

This rifle is in very good condition. It retains much of its original blued finish, although there are some small areas of very light pitting. The polished lock and hammer are dark and there is light pitting covering the majority of these parts. The woodwork is in good condition and has not been refinished. There are minor dings and dents. 'DEVLIN/1865' has been lightly scratched into the butt of the rifle.
