Hey guys i'm still tunneling through the cave and decided to sell a pair of very rare Hotchkiss kits. Kit#1 is a model 1900 with a SINGLE DIGIT SN# and may be the the earliest mod 1900 left in the world and it has all matching #'s! This gun has the cannon style barrel with out a flash hider. The receiver on kit 1 also has a presentation plaque "DONATED BY THE REPUBLIC OF FRANCE" This kit is in 8MM Lebel. This is a SUPER NICE and VERY RARE kit! I have been told that Lebel feed strips will take 7.62X54R with out any modification for a caliber conversion. Kit #2 is a model 1914 in 7MM i think, but i'm not sure, its definitely not a rimed type case. All the writing is in french and not Jap or something like that. the reason i'm selling the 2 kits together is i am missing a cocking "handle, feed tray, and ejector" those 3 parts interchange between the Mod 1900 and Mod 1914. These are truly unique and beautiful if you had to describe them. The best feature of these 2 kits is they are both "SAW CUT"!! Easily made into Post samples, Semi autos or Very Unique museum pieces for the Man Cave!! Because there seems to be more tripods than guns i will be offering A BEAUTIFUL "Cleveland" tripod, tools, 80 feed strips and 4 or 500 rnds of 8MM Lebel separately. These guns are BIG and HEAVY, I just thought would run this by the forum before i put them on G.B. These are not cheep but also very rare and not something you see every day. having trouble with my I phone camera. I will put pics up soon if there is any real interest i may be open to partial trades but am looking mostly for cash.....Thanks for looking!!
