Re: " Cleaned Up" Berthiers

Here are some close up views of what is an arsenal rebuilt, common Chatellerault (MAC), 5 shot, Berthier 1907/15 that is in a thin black paint, all matching, with an arsenal repaired stock with the nice small wood patches found on French rifles. This was a find at a local show and I paid too much $...

Isn't Brisbane quite a ways from Canberra? Best Regards, Mark The lattey sight has a magnifying lense for ...

I got a firm answer. Mine functions like the others. 1886 Lebel states: I just tested mine and it is exactly like in your pictures you posted, the extractor does not pick up the rim into the chamber, it only goes into it when you fully close the bolt, so it snaps into the rim then.
