I hope that this tread will not boring for some of the mebers but, if i can, i would like to post, in the future, some of the BP rifles in my collections and to make possible more learning about this wonderfull pieces of art.
BEAUMONT Mod. 1871/88
The repeating version of the sigle loaded Model 1871 with an italian Vitali box magazine. There are other differences with the past model: the bolt now incorporates an ejector as well as an extractor, and the receiver is fitted with gas escape vents in the event of a split case, much like the M1874 Gras. A unique feature of the Beaumont (Copied by the Japanese Murata Meiji 13 and carried forward in the Murata Meiji 18) is the striker spring housed in the bolt handle.
The modification year is printed on the buttplate of the rifle.
