Please click the image for a larger version
French Mle 1874/80 Gras rifle. Serial number 19863, appears all matching, including cleaning rod. Metal parts have excellent original blue finish on the barrel and medium brown patina elsewhere. Stock shows serial number and cartouche, may have been lightly cleaned at the time of upgrade to the 1880 system, shows a lovely patina overall with minimal light handling marks and a few minor chips in the cleaning rod channel. Appears to be mechanically good. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
