Has anyone ever seen anything like this:
http://www.egun.de/market/item.php?id=4083363

The description translates roughly as: I am selling a hammer model falling block rifle, caliber 6X70, overall length 101 cm., barrel length 59 cm., length of pull 34 cm. The rifle can be completely taken apart. German claw mount with Hubertus (Germany) scope 8X42/49, double set triggers, bore bright, made by Reicher in Graz.

From the photographs the rifle comes apart just behind the falling block mechanism, so that the back action lock remains with the buttstock and the action and fore end remain firmly attached to the barrel.

I apologise for not posting the photos, but my photobucket account seems locked up with the new system and I can't access it at present. Maybe someone else will oblige.

Maybe some Alex Henry variant like this left side lock version?

Johann Kalezky of Wien looks to be the Alexander Henry contact source for the Austro-Hungarian Empire. I did not remember him having a DR falling block patent but I would venture a guess that he was sourced by the waffenhändler of Graz that peddled the subject falling block.
