Wanzl Model 1860 Trapdoor Single Shot 14 mm Rifles

RiflesSingle ShotUsed£ 850

The Wanzl rifle is significant as it was the first breech loading rifle of the Austrian Hapsburg Army and was developed in 1860 utilising a conversion of the Lorenz muzzle loading rifle.

The rifles were manufactured in both centrefire and rimfire calibres (14mm x 33mm) and the calibre is obsolete so can be owned in the UK without a license.
The lock of this rifle is dated 1863 and is a rimfire rifle in very good condition with a tight action and clean bore. The rifle exhibits numerous military markings .
The rifle was replaced by the Werndl rifle in 1867 but unbelievably was still in use at the end of World War One which is a testament to their robustness. Some 70,000 rifles were converted and survival rates in good condition are low.
An interesting rifle seldom encountered in the UK....Read full description
