Make sure and visit the Musee des Invalides. Here is a St, Etienne M1907 they have there. Anyone know what the weapon is behind the M1907?
I've visited Musee des Invalides a couple times. It's a must stop when in Paris.You know I visited this museum last time I was in Paris, but honestly I can't recall much of it, exept for some US GI displays. The Musee des Invalides' collections will stagger you in comparison. Some of the coolest things there are the Napoleonic cannon on the second floor balcony. Several have their barrel ends bent/creased by enemy cannonball hits. There is also a French Heavy Cavalryman's metal breatplate with a cannister ball hole right through the center. If I recall correctly it came from the Battle of Waterloo.
