Deactivated Gras Mle 1874 Rifle SN. 7917 *

Availability: In stock

£550.00

Quick Overview

Deactivated Gras Mle 1874 11mm Rifle in good condition. 1880 manufacture, with French military stamps. Latest EU spec, so moving trigger and bolt, but non firing action. The Chassepot Fusil modèle 1866 was adopted in 1866 by the French Army and was revolutionary, for its time. They were updated in 1874 and renamed the Gras Mle 1874. These served until 1886. The single shot breech loader could fire up to fourteen aimed shots a minute and the 11mm round had a range of up to 1200 metres and was very powerful. It made every other weapon obsolete overnight. It was first used in combat in 1867 where the French decimated the Italian Army – mainly due to the superior firepower of the Chassepot. An important historical weapon in firearms evolution. All deactivated weapons sold by D and B Militaria are deactivated in the United Kingdom and hold London or Birmingham proof marks and a certificate stating that the weapon has been deactivated correctly.
