Breech-loading Shotgun. The origin of this shotgun is an interesting one. Originally, this was an 1857 French musket. Soon after they were converted to breech-loaders, using the Snider system, so that they became known as the System 1867. They were used in the Franco-Prussian War in which the French were defeated. By the end of the war, the French decided that the converted muskets were unacceptable. Being that there was no military use for these surplus guns as they were, a Belgian gun maker, Bertrand & Fils, had the idea to convert these (for a second time) into shotguns. No visible markings to indicate manufacturer, model, or caliber, Possible serial number under breach block 297. Wood stock is fair due to some missing chunks, cracks and repairs, Metal is fully silvered with rust & pitting, bead front sight, Bore is dark, pitted but usable. Winter restoration project. No FFL Req. - Value: 20 to 200
