Deactivated Portuguese Steyr Kropatschek M1886 infantry rifle



This is a deactivated Steyr-Kropatschek M1886 rifle, designed by Alfred von Kropatschek in 1886 and built at the Steyr factory in Austria.  Influenced by the German Mauser M71/84, this rifle was adopted by forces of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the French Navy, where it in turn influenced the Lebel M1886. However it was supplied in the greatest of numbers to the Portuguese Army and Navy.  It also served as a second-line weapon, with reserve forces during WW1. This particular example is in super condition, complete with original cleaning rod, with very good furniture and metalwork. Matching serial numbers to barrel and breech, and also the stock. Featuring under-barrel tubular magazine, state-of-the-art in the 1880's,  it was soon to be surpassed by rifles like the Mauser G98 and Lee-Enfield Rifle no1. An unusual 'long' rifle, and heavy! Although this rifle is deemed to be of obsolete calibre, it has been deactivated in the UK with a proofhouse certificate to full UK specification, and is priced accordingly.
