    Default A gift from a co-worker: Lebel 1886-93 riffle

    Hello

    A co-worker gave me this nice piece of history: a french Lebel 1886-93, but without its wooden part.

    She found it during house work.













    I want to restore it (but not for shooting!) but I'm looking for spare parts:
    - buttplate and screw
    - barrel band with sling loop
    - front band for bayonet

    If you have some, think of me :-)

    Another co-worker will make the wood part.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    If you Google "Lebel Rifle Parts for sale" you'll find that Lebel parts are easily obtained and surprisingly cheap!
    Good luck with your project, looking forward to seeing the end result!
    cheers, Glenn

    Thank you all :-)
    @eldelweis123: you MUST speak to you co-worker.. and all of your co-worker! I'm working for a city (I'm a "little-little" chief) and it's the maid who cleans my office every day that gave me this riffle.

    I found the buttplate and it's two screw today :-) and already looking for the rest!
    Thank you to bigmacglenn1966 for the tip :-)

    Cheers from France
