.22rf converted 1897 Kadett rifle

The country that avoids war and the country that fights but has a hard time winning have been combined. The Swiss made some excellent firearms and the French made some unique and occasionally inspiring ones. We have added the Belgian and Dutch since they are neighbors.

My friend just bought himself a nice christmas present, this conversion of the single shot 7.5 Swiss Cadet model. We had a shoot with it yesterday and what a cracking little shooter it is.

I looked at one of those at Henry Kranks a few years ago. I didn't buy it and now wish I had done.
Regards
Peter.
