M1886 O.E.W.F.G. Styer L.I. All numbers found Match, Good Condition, Crown over L.I., Low Serial Number $99 NO RESERVE

Info found online: The Kropatschek tubular magazine system, developed for use in this rifle designed by Alfred von Kropatschek was patterned in many respects after the German Mauser M71/84. The rifle was built for Portugal by Styer in lieu of the short-lived M1885 Portuguese Guedes-Castro, an elegant, well made single shot rifle (never actually adopted by Portugal but used in combat extensively by the Boers in South Africa against the British) competing in the age of repeaters. The Portuguese Kroptchek however did retain basically the same cartridge as the Guedes, a sharply bottle-necked 8mm black-power round. The black powder loading was phased out when smokeless powder bacame available to Portugal in 1896. The sights on the modified rifles are altered to give a maximum range of 2,200 meters. This magazine system is utilized in the M1878 French Kropatschek Marine rifles, the M1884 French Kropatschek Infantry rifles, and was utilized as the magazine system for the well known M1886 Lebel (the first military rifle specifically built for smokeless powder.

The trigger guard pistol grip spur, magazine spring cap extention, side mounted cleaning rod, lack of stacking rod and its 8mm bore readily differentiate the Portuguese Kropatschek from it's most similar cousin, the German M71/84 Mauser. The receiver is well marked OE.W.F.G. STEYR.

Very Good condition, see pics. Bore looks good, 8 out of 10, some pitting, sharp rifling, see pics. Original metal finish looks good, see pics. Original stock looks very good. Great operational and aesthetic condition.

Another cool old rifle from my late uncle’s collection.

Must ship to FFL. Buyer responsible to know local laws, not for sale where illegal. Shipping $45 + 1% of sales price for insurance, I'm not an FFL but am shipping through one. ONLY...USPS money order or certified checks are accepted. C&R 003 FFL IS GOOD TO GO. Shipping to CA $20 extra. AK & HI $40 Extra.

If anyone needs more pics, just ask. Thanks for looking.
