superb precision rifle, signed by GALAND, famous and renowned French gunsmith, installed in Liège from 1860 to 1890. It is one of the last rimfire models, 6 mm calibre, equipped with a falling-block breech (rolling block system type) before the manufacture of a central percussion rifle.
It works well mechanically, with two well-synchronised notches and clear percussion.
Perfectly functioning breech and automatic ejector.
Completely original with wood and parts numbered.
- heavy barrel with thin grooves (interior in good condition, impossible to show in photos), solid design and manufacture (3.2 kg barrel - 9.5 mm thick steel)
- precision model equipped with a differentiable sight and an adjustable backsight (advanced on graduated rail, adjustable with mallet).
- superb butt with cheek plate, gridded walnut, typical of Galland manufacturing
superb and very interesting deluxe rifle, in its patina, with signs of use and age, but still in a superb condition.
