Click on an image to enlarge
This is a very interesting gun that has a good look. This one has the full-length 37-1/2 inch barrel secured by three barrel bands. It has a pleasing uncleaned finish with a gorgeous beech wood stock that has a gorgeous look all over. It has the lock that is clearly marked "866", this was the Austrian way of indicating original manufacture in 1866. This gun would have originally been an Austrian M-1862 Lorenz percussion rifle musket. Later it was altered to breechloader by the Wanzl system. In the next life it was reconverted to percussion in Belgium for the African trade by adding a cast iron breech with percussion bolster. If you notice it is retaining the offset Wanzl hammer as well as the Wanzl pattern rear sight. It has the original front sight that doubles as a bayonet lug. The barrel retains the original .547 rifling. It still has the original the lower sling swivel with the upper sling swivel present as well. It has the correct pattern full-length original ramrod. This is a very good looking gun that has had a couple of cool lives.
