    ;) Hello Gentlemen:
    I,m the new guy on the block,but have plenty of forum experience.I collect old military handguns,Lugers,Mausers,Walthers ,Colts etc. But I just wanted to show you my Borchardt 45/70 carbine sn#424.This rifle was sent to the Louisiana State militia on Dec 7th 1877 even before Sharps received the patent in 1878.The first 300 went to the Chinese.
    Kind Regards
    Danny
