AKA the Duch Beaumont; these rifles were adopted by the Dutch in 1871, until they were replaced by the high-velocity 6.5mm Mannlicher round at the turn of the century. The weird magazine was designed by an Italian named Vitali, whose magazine was also used on the Vetterli-Vitali rifle. You can use .43 Egyptian rounds in these rifles, but .43 Egyptian is almost as hard to find as the 11.3x52R Beaumont.
