Back in 1892 she was the cutting edge on the battlefield

Now she is just a bubba'ed pile of parts. But I still see the beauty in the old girl. Like Raquel Welsh, who is 80 I think, you still notice the looks and the quality. The gun was built in Switzerland in 1892 and sent home with a soldier in 1920 as his private weapon. Somebody took great care of the rifle. The bore is perfect, and the parts still fit like they did 129 years ago.
