French Flare Rifle

Post by gunnertwo » Sun 15 Mar 2020, 21:49

A buddy has turned up a French Chobert conversion flare rifle. I'd like to buy it but don't have an idea on value, could anyone help with a price?

Thanks,

G2

Without seeing it or knowing condition $500 - $1600
Guns have only two enemies, rust and politicians.


I am still looking for ANY information regarding the European Use of the Original Costons flares from 1859 through 1881. Photo's, Patents, contracts & orders, ANY INFORMATION IS NEEDED ! !
