    The last of my latest aquisitions,
    My German Mauser M1871 dated 1877 and made at the Bavarian Amberg Arsenal.
    This was the German answer to the Chassepot after the Franco Prussian War. The Prussaians were armed with the Dreyse which was the Germans first bolt action rifle and was inferior to the Chassepot.

    This is a Rifle I have been after for some time, I have one which is missing a few parts,rear sight cleaning rod and it is almost impossible to find them.
    This rifle is all matching numbers as you can see and is in superb condition. I have 6 bayonets for this rifle so it will have a special place in my collection. It is the earliest of my German rifles.

    Regards

    Jim

    Very good G71 (I have a G71/84 but well used)-the rifle wasn't used in the Franco Prussian war though-adopted after the end of it and the unification of Germany as a result of the Prussian success-you do find captured Chassepot altered by the Germans to use their 11mm round as a stopgap until enough G71s were available.

    Hello Lithgow,
    Yes mate you are correct it was the Dreyse used in the war and this was the result if it.
    The Dreyse was an inferior weapon compared to the Chassepot. It was the Prussian tactics which won the war.
    Thanks for that.

    Seems we like the same type of rifles. I was after the 1871 for quite a while until I stumbled on an 1871 Jagger with the long sword bayonet and scabbard(SP). IIRC it's has a regimental marking on it.
