Variations on Gras Cavalry Carbines & Conversions from Ethiopia

All the best firearms history channels streaming to all major devices:

While I was at InterOrdnance unpacking French rifles, I took the opportunity to pull out a couple different examples of Gras Cavalry Carbines to show the differences between original French production examples and Belgian commercial conversions. What we will see today are how to recognize:

– French Mle 1874 and Mle 1866-74 Gras cavalry carbines
– French Gras infantry rifles cut down to cavalry carbine configuration
– French Gras rifles cut down and put into cavalry carbine stocks
– French Gras carbines put into cut-down infantry rifle stocks
– Totally weird oddballs
