Comment: Rare early production 1919 dated M16 Berthier Carbine produced by St Etienne in very good condition. It comes with its original sling, a second pattern bayonet and scabbard in excellent condition and two rare 5 round clips one late pattern and one very rare blued early pattern. It has a mismatched bolt as per most French rifles however the stamp on the stock matches the receiver serial number. It has lovely stock grain, great metal finish, a solid bolt lockup and strong rifling. The only flaws on the rifle are that the sheet metal ring that retains the upper hand guard has split in the centre however it could be easily fixed and there is some minor bluing worn away from under the hand guard. These old French rifles are becoming harder and harder to come by and a package deal such as this one is almost never seen! If you would like some more photos or have any other questions feel free to send me a message! Postage is at buyers expense and price is negotiable.
