Hammer price: $7,500

The Belgian Army held rifle trials in the late 1880s to choose a new infantry rifle, and the winner was the Model 1889 Belgian Mauser. Quite a few different guns were involved in the competition though, including this Engh-patent rifle made by Liegeoise. It’s a pretty unusual bolt action that is definitely worth taking a closer look at!
