I recently returned from a European trip that was packed full of pinfire-related sightseeing and discoveries such as tracking down all of Casimir Lefaucheux's 19th century retail shops. Feel free to take a peak on my adventure!

Great report Aaron and excellent photographs. Looks like the weather cooperated as well. Lucky you didn't try to go to the Archives de Paris..they are not helpful.

Yeah I thought about visiting the Musée des Archives Nationales as they were right beside Musée Chasse et Nature. But I figured they would not have relevant things on display. Next trip I will schedule time at INPI to see some original patents and maybe request some specific documents from the archives to see.

Great post and pictures. The Musée de la Chasse is well worth a visit!
