This arm, although not strictly American, has embodied in its manufacture several American patents. It is a breech-loader and very much resembling the Sharps rifle. The mountings, receiver and breech-block are made of Phosphorus bronze; the barrel is made of steel. The militia of Belgium are armed with this rifle, while the regular troops have the Albini-Brandlin gun.
