The M1867-8 Swiss Vetterli Prototype

    Early prototype (I have a woodcut drawing of an early Vetterli Prototype with external  hammer
    cocked by the retracting bolt, 'a la Hotchkiss.  But it's a big file so I haven't  uploaded it to conserve
    space.  E-mail me if you'd like to see it and I'll upload it.      Thanks, Keith)

            Leather swabs & Trompion for use with the Vetterlis
