    French Chassepot M1866 11mm Bolt Action Needle Fire Infantry Rifle, #1468 ( ). Metal overall very nice, smooth and brown, untouched. Bears appropriate proofs and date of manufacture, 1867, at the breech. Wood also untouched and very nice, although missing a narrow 6" sliver on the upper portion of the left forestock, and with a replaced piece, an obviously period armory repair, on the underside of the buttstock, very difficult to detect. Missing the buttstock sling swivel and base, else complete and original in every respect. Mechanically fine, excellent bore. The standard French infantry rifle from 1866 to 1874.
