This is a British Kynoch Gun Factory converted French Military Chassepot M1866 rifle. After France's defeat in the Franco-Prussian War of 1871, the French government attributed a large portion of blame for the their loss on the Chassepot rifle's poor reliability on the battlefield. At this time the Chassepot utilised the needle fire system, French officials were convinced of the need to adopt a metallic cartridge centre fire system. In 1873, France awarded a contracted to the Kynoch Gun Factory, Aston here in the UK to modify and converted their remaining Chassepot rifles for centre fire. These modified rifles were designated the Chassepot Model 1873 rifle and can be identified by the markings on the barrel and receiver. In 1874 the French adopted the Gras Model 1874 rifle, although Kynoch continued reworking the Chassepot's until the late 1870s. During WWI many of these converted Chassepots were put back into service. It has a 32” barrel with a near mint bore, clean & bright with crisp rifling.

**MUSEUM QUALITY, MINT BORE, VERY RARE** 1863 Kammerlader Model 1851 Swedish Navy Pivoting Breech 18 Bore Percussion Rifle. Sn 17078 - 17078
These rifles adopted by the Swedish Navy in 1851 were produced by P. J. Malherbe in Belgium and in Sweden by Carl Gustaf Stads Gevärsfaktori. The rifles used a pivoting chamber breech design and had a percussion cap ignition system. The chamber pivots upwards from the front for reloading. The kammerlader was designed to use paper cartridges — a pre-measured amount of gunpowder and a lead bullet wrapped in paper — both to speed up and simplify loading the weapon. Our example has the correct pivoting breech which is raised by operating a steel lever on the side of the action. The chamber is then ready for loading and a percussion cap is placed on the nipple which is presented on the underside of the chamber. The lever is then used to re-seat the chamber ready for firing. The ringed hammer on the underside of the action is then cocked and the weapon is fired by depression of the separate trigger in the conventional way. The metal work and Walnut stock with figured cheek piece are in splendid condition suitable for Museum display. It has a 26 ¾” barrel with a near mint, bore, clean & bright with deep cut, 6 groove rifling and measures 49” overall. It has a brass butt plate, brass barrel bands, blade foresight & 'notched plate' rear sight. The barrel has Carl Gustaff ‘Crown C’ mark & other factory inspectors marks (illustrated).
