My model 1892 8mm French Lebel

Image

I was down to shooting 12 reloads from Gads Custom Ammo on my birthday,,,
But then I just got lucky and happened to stumble on 550 rounds of new manufactured ammo from Fiocchi.

This gun is an example of severely fine manufacturing,,,
She's well over 100 years old and still tight,,,
The detail in the metalwork is wonderful.

Does anyone else own one of these puppies? Love to hear from you!

I had one for a short time that was dated 1902. I liked the care in machining and how you could open it up. But I somehow was temped to swap it in for a S&W revolver.
