Just in from Africa! We now have original Model 1886 Lebel rifles in stock! These rifles were the first standard issue smokeless powder rifle ever issued to a large scale military and served the French military from the late 1800’s and during the First World War. These rifles are incredibly rare and in 100% functional condition.
These particular rifles were modified by the Ethiopians at some point during their service use. The overall length varies, but most have been shortened anywhere from about 6-12 inches. Due to the shortened barrel, the magazine tubes have also been shortened from 8 rounds to roughly 3-7 rounds of 8mm Lebel. All the rifles are 100% functional and a very interesting piece of history. Masy be missing some small parts such as small screws and may have some cracks in the stock. Rear sight may be loose, incomplete, or missing. These are the last of what we have available. Don’t forget to check Ian McCollum’s video on Forgotten Weapons about these specific Lebels!
