out to an astonishing 2,000 meters! We have shot this relic having great fun and amazing results. Art Clark III Battle Mountain, Nevada You have the French Mannlicher Berthier, which was designed in 1890 to replace the Mle 1874 Gras carbines then in service with the French cavalry and others.

A rather good story on the Mannlicher Berthier by John Sheehan appeared in the February 2006 issue.

At the very least, it adds “salability” because Mag-na-port’s workmanship is of high quality, the system works and it’s a very clean modification. Now, if you had ported a mint WWI German Artillery Luger, that would be a different story! Due to the volume of mail received, GUNS cannot offer a personal reply.
