Quick Overview

Obsolete Calibre Rare French Tabatière 18 x 35mm Rimfire Calibre Rifle in good condition, with full working action, and correct bayonet. The Tabatière rifle was a breech-loading rifle of the French Army. The Tabatière system was developed from 1864 as a way to convert numerous muzzle-loading weapons (usually Minié rifles) into breech-loading version. The name "Tabatière" comes from the French word for snuff box, because of its loading mechanism. Most of the conversion work had been accomplished by the time of the Franco-Prussian War. By July 1870, roughly 358.000 rifles had been converted. Obsolete calibre, no licence required.
