    WW1 Era, 1880 French Military, Fusil Gras Model 1874 11mm Calibre Service Musket With 1879 St Etienne Arsenal Sword Bayonet & Scabbard. A 1035 - A 1035

    This is an early breech loading French military rifle. The Gras continued to be issued to French troops throughout WW1. This is a very good example. The wood is all original with just knocks bumps & bruises to be expected with age and service use. It has heavy military furniture and the metal work has even patina throughout. It has a block foresight, ladder rear sight, bayonet block, steel butt plate, sling swivels & original cleaning rod. It measures 50 ½” overall with a 30 ½” barrel. The smooth bore has staining & residue consistent with age & use. The breech has the faint indistinct signature of the French Arsenal manufacturer & ‘M1874' model detail together with other numbers and inspection marks and 1880 date (illustrated). Its loading and firing actions work as they should. The weapon is complete with correct sword bayonet which has a clean 20 ½” 'T' back blade. The ricasso has inspection marks. The back of the blade is marked in French ’Manufacture d'Armes de St Etienne’ and dated ‘1879'. The bayonet has its original wood grips, brass pommel and steel cross guard with hook quillon. The cross guard has indistinct numbers. The bayonet is complete with original black painted steel scabbard which has a fixed belt bar, no dents and just surface wear to be expected. The scabbard has indistinct numbers near to the throat. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre rifle no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. A 1035
