Anyone have an old Manufacture Française d’armes et cycles de Saint Etienne catalog from the 1870s? I want to see what information they included on this new box i picked up.

Hi Aaron.

Hi Will,

There is no headstamp, these are 2mm rimfires. They are the much rarer thin rim, loaded version.

hello,

You can’t have Manufacture Francaise d’armes et cycles de st etienne in the 1870’s because it started in 1900

Before the name was manufacture Francaise d’armes de St Etienne and it started only in 1885

They never manufactured ammo but ordered it from SFM

I don’t think there is a description of your box in the catalogues, anyway I will check soon and let know you

Hi,
It is a little later but it can help.
In this site you can find five old catalogs, 1890, 1895, 1900, 1905 and 1910.
Just scroll down until you find the catalogs.
It worth to search.
