Valtro USA Model 1886 rifle


Taken from wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lebel_Model_1886_rifle

The Lebel Model 1886 rifle (French: Fusil Modèle 1886 dit "Fusil Lebel") is also known as the "Fusil Mle 1886 M93", after a bolt modification was added in 1893. It is an 8mm bolt action repeating infantry rifle which entered service in the French Army in April 1887.The Lebel rifle was developed as a result of the first successful smokeless gunpowder, invented by French chemist Paul Vieille (1854–1934) in 1884. When it first appeared, the Lebel's 8×50R smokeless ammunition allied to its longer range and flatter trajectory brought a revolution in infantry armament.
