Original Belgian Flobert Small Bore Rifle for Indoor Shooting circa 1880 - 1890
Original Item: Only one available. In 1950s England, children such as IMA Owner Christian Cranmer were always falling all over these nasty little Belgian Rifles. Made in the 1880's and 1890's for shooting indoors, we have never met any Mother who allowed that sort of thing, especially at the Cranmer house!
Breech loading with a hammer and tiny bore of about .22 caliber or less, like the common Diana Air Rifle. It features an octagonal barrel, made half stocked and it did not look anything like a Winchester 1873, so to a child this was not even rated as anything but a joke!
From the attic, because we could never find it to throw out now it can be YOURS, as is, uncleaned for an antique display!
