Berthier 1917 long rifle

1573 Views 6 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  JaDub
I bought, at auction, my first French rifle. It is marked 1917 and is a Berthier long rifle that has not been modified in anyway other than having the bolt replaced. Being a newby with French rifles, I`d appreciate any comments or observations anyone would like to make.

Cheers, JaDub

Looks like you have a typical Fusil de Infanterie Modèle Modifié 1916

It was slightly bent by 'bubba' for some reason, as moblotaire said it should be straight.
