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. It measures 52" overall with a 32 ¼” barrel. The barrel’s bore is near mint, clean and bright with well defined rifling. It has an internal, tubular magazine and its loading and firing mechanisms work crisply. It has all original woodwork which is impressed with Steyr & ‘Crown L.I’ (Luiz I Portugal) roundels . The breech is stamped with ‘Crown L.I’ (Luiz I Portugal)'. The metal is also stamped 'M 1886’. The rifle is serial number ‘G 531 ’ which is stamped on the breech, barrel and wood. The bolt is numbered ‘K65’. It is complete with cleaning rod, steel butt plate, sling swivels fitted with leather sling, block and blade fore sight, graduated ladder rear sight and bayonet stud. The price includes UK delivery. NB as an obsolete calibre, antique weapon no licence is required to own this this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 17099:12
