Daryl, that IS a neat looking rifle!

lancaster, your threads are always fascinating.

I always find sporting arms from the non-anglo/non-teutonic world quite interesting. I have no exposure to them but the French have always been great hunters and have bed some of the finest hounds over the centuries, and of course their vast world-wide empire always lives in the shadow of the British in the English-speaking world.

Quite interesting to think of one of those rivals in the sweltering heat on the spoor of a tiger in Indochina!

That Kahles is almost identical to the one on my George Gibbs 303.
Shows that even the Brits were not averse to utilizing a quality design in their own rifles.
Take the Mauser/Rigby scope mounting system - first it was Mauser's and then it became Rigby's.
