I'm just asking, but since there is a >>250<< under the toplever, does that indicate it to be a Modell Nr. 250?

202 = 1931-40
250 = 1931-40
214 = 1931-36

I think we have in in the right decade anyway. I would assume that Raimey is right about it being 250 though

Salut Raimey,
La première chose qui me vient à l'esprit est que cette arme a été montée avec des pièces de rebuts de la Manufacture d'armes de Saint Etienne.
Il n'y a aucun marquage MF sur cette arme.
Sur ce lien, un Robust modèle 250 :

Thanks fab500. I figure it was a cobbled together longarm. Did the Stéphanoise mechanics in St. Etienne also have what we called >>Lunchbox Guns<< where mechanics brought out parts in their lunchboxs and made guns at home?

fab500 writes. "Hi Raimey,The first thing that comes to my mind is that this arm has ben built with with scrap parts from Manufrance. There are no markings "MF" on this gun. On this line (below) (an authentic) Robust model 250."

Tom was spot on in his commentary as was Raimey. Well done to all.

Fab, svp, comment c'appelle ce Manton levier de sécurité en Francais? Nous avons spéculé que le nom est quelque chose comme come ca:
"Fusil de chasse à percussion juxtaposé à chargement par la bouche avec levier de sécurité en dessous de la crosse anglaise."

"levier de sécurité en dessous de la crosse anglaise." Ca Marche?

Serbus,

Il semblerait que ce fait était aussi courant à Saint-Etienne. À la MF, cela allait encore plus loin. Lors de leurs inventaires périodiques, il manquait toujours quelques fusils.
Etienne MIMARD, dans une lettre ouverte à ses ouvriers, s'était plaint de cette situation.

Fab writes to Raimey re "lunchbox guns": "It seems that this was also going on in Saint-Étienne. At MF, it was above and beyond. During their periodic inventories they were always missing several guns. Etienne MIMARD in an open letter to his workers complained about this situation."

Salut Argo,

"Fusil de chasse juxtaposé à percussion centrale et sécurité à la poignée". Voilà ce que l'on dit en langage courant en français.

Etant donné que c'est une percussion centrale, il n'est pas nécessaire d'écrire le mode de chargement.
