View Full Version : Old rifle-what is it?

March 30, 2012, 12:09 PM
I was at the range today and someone brought in this old rifle and had no clue what it is. Neither do I.

I only had a camera phone so pictures are probably not real good.

The rifle does have a bayonet lug on the right side of the barrel a few inches from the muzzle.

The stock looks like it was hacked out by chisel. Very crude looking. The rifle does have a military type ladder rear sight.

The hammer is external and on the right side and the bolt is flipped up with the thumb. I have never seen anything like this.

Maybe you guys can help.

I have both a M1867 (in your pics) and a M1867/77 which mounts the hammer on the INSIDE of the lock plate. A very interesting and unusual rifle to be sure.
