I cant tell you what it is, but I can tell you what it aint... that is no Mauser. Hopefully someone will come by and know what it is.

Super nice score for free though, that's for sure :)

You are totally right Walt! This is a 1890 St. Etienne Mannlicher 8mm Lebel.

Now that I have it ( ;) ), I can speak accurately about it!

But, I ALSO got a Mauser. I am bust cleaning the Mannlicher now... first patches down the bore were spotless...
I put a light up it and viewed it, spotty. Ran a brass brush through it several time and the lead is POURING out
now on the patches. Bore is beginning to gleam!

After working on this one a bit I'll run another thread on the Mauser details.

Nice piece of history you've got there. The French didn't get their reputation as white flag wavers during WWI -- this rifle may have seen tough times in the trenches.

Looking forward to seeing the others too.

It is indeed a very long throw on the bolt, though it feels appropriate

Looking for the photos I uploaded to photo suckit yesterday... logged into them right now and they don't even show me the directorys
I created yesterday. I know they are still there because the photos are being displayed here... photo suckit... I'm starting to see why people
don't like them. Working on pics now.
