Gras Fusil 1874 Empty
PostSubject: Gras Fusil 1874   Gras Fusil 1874 EmptyMon Jun 17, 2019 5:11 pm

I have acquired a French Gras Fusil 1874 which is pretty much contemporary with the Martini Henry. The rifle is single metal cartridge of the same calibre as MH. Any thoughts on how they compared in service?
