    Alfred Ritter von Kropatschek (March 30, 1838 - 1911) was a General in the Austrian Army and a weapons designer of the late 19th century, who was responsible for several rifle and revolver designs in affiliation with the Steyr Company; these weapons were used by the armed forces of the Austrian Empire and several other nations. His rifles feature a tubular magazine under the barrel similar to a Winchester rifle. One of his designs was sold to the French Navy, and was later adapted by the French Army. Kropatschek patent weapons were used by the French Army and Navy during the First World War. This is an excellent example of a Portuguese contract Kropatschek Steyr Model 1886 rifle.
