Default Reffy Mitrailleuse (French machine gun)--Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71

From my friend in LA:

Here is a very detailed diagrammatic presentation of how the Reffy Mitrailleuse (French machine gun) worked. The French had 144 of them in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71 although they did employ them correctly. Other clips do the same with the Gatling gun, etc. Enjoy!

Contrary to rumor that is no accessory tube on the weapon to store white flags.
