Leverd & Counet

It is a rifle that is disassembled in two parts, barrel and butt containing the firing mechanism, without forearm.

Typical poacher’s weapon, it appears in some old catalogues as the Leverd or Levert system.

The barrel is attached to the casing in a system similar to that of a socket bayonet. It is an avatar of patent 106 283 filed in 1893 by MM. Jean Jacques Leverd and Counet.
