Hello, I’m selling this unusual rifle called a folding poacher gun, one shot pinfire gunpowder, from the arms factory of Saint Etienne, 1850 model
16 calibre pinfire, beautiful markings on the barrel, the hammer marks the two notches, but very lightly, and the trigger does not activate the percussion (the mechanism needs servicing), not being an expert, I can say no more, the barrel hammer its bronzing, with its brass sight. The unlock lever is present and functional. The butt plate is clean, the butt shows some scuffs and signs of wear, please see the many photos for the condition.
