Hi. I am new to this forum. I just picked up my first French rifle. It appears to be a Gras, made in Tulle with a date on the barrel of 1885? Seems pretty late to building single shot black powder rifles, but I know very little about them. The rifle is in beautiful shape. No pitting, excellent rifling, excellent finish and nice stock. Now as the story goes, this rifle spent most of it's life as a lamp! Someone removed the cocking piece and firing pin to run a cord through the bolt. It also may be drilled out as the hole looks too big for any firing pin I've seen. I just couldn't pass it up for $80.00. I guess I need some info on where to get bolt parts and maybe a cleaning rod. I intend to fire this piece eventually (none of my guns are closet queens!) and will need load info. Any ideas? Thanks.
