Article about: The Greeks used French surplus Gras 11mm rifles in the late 19th century-they were common throughout the Balkans as the French vied for influence with the Germans and Austrians in the region

    Default Unkown rifle,, Probably British. Need help.

    Hello everybody.
    I found this weird rifle in a restaurant in Geece. The owner told me that the only thing he knows is that it's British (??). He found it on the top of a mountain.
    I think it's from late 1800 - early 1900.
    Any opinions??

    Was the mountain in Greece?-can't think of any way such a British rifle would have ended up there.

    I was thinking the same thing. Although I have just found a post by another forum member stating that the Greeks did use them.

    That's what the owner told me. He said that a tourist found it on a mountain at the greek island of Poros. Who knows! Maybe there were some Zulu's in Greece too.. Hehe!
