4 of 5 Complete, functional rifle September 9, 2021
Reviewer: Oland from TX  
I paid $1249.99 for a Grade B non-matching. Good stock with no cracks. All hardware is present. Dark bore with only fair rifling present even after cleaning. Good clear markings on receiver. Fires and functions.

4 of 5 1886 Lebel March 9, 2021
Reviewer: Jason from Delaware  
I ordered an A tier numbers matching rifle. I finally received the rifle nearly a month and a half later.  What arrived was better than expected.  What I received was indeed a numbers matching rifle. It was also an antique rifle produced in 1890 by St. Enteaein. The bore has strong rifling but is dark. This is to be expected for it's age. Finish is nearly all gone, it looks like the rifle was bead blasted at one time. All these things were expected.  It is 130 years old and sat for years in poor storage conditions. However the rifle was missing the extractor. After an email to customer service a replacement was sent. All and all I am satisfied with my purchase and will place more orders with RTI

4 of 5 Pricey and dirty, but good. January 22, 2021
Reviewer: Malcolm from Texas, United States  
Purchased one of the B-grade Lebels. The rifle arrived filthy and required an extremely thorough cleaning but was entirely functional and cleaned very well. It's a beautiful, useable rifle. Bore is is fairly corroded but there is still very visible rifling and it is surprisingly accurate. Only real issue is a weak firing pin spring, which can easily be replaced. $1250 is a high price, but if you can afford it I would say it's worth it.

4 of 5 Worth the price January 4, 2021
Reviewer: Ethan Worlin from Merrill, WI United States  
I opted for the B-grade, trusting the description when it said it'd be completely functional. When I received the rifle, it had some of the issues I was expecting. The inside of the receiver and front end of the bore had a good deal of rust, but 0000 steel wool worked fairly well on that. After cleaning the bore is dark, but I was pleasantly surprised to see strong rifling still. I have put 20 rounds through it thus far and can verify it functions, with a 2 to 3 inch group at 50 yards. The only real issue I've had is the horizontal receiver screw that goes through the action. The threads on the tip are almost completely gone, so the screw tends to fall out when cycling the action. However, considering the age, I just happy that was the only real issue I've had. In short, the rifle is as advertised.

5 of 5 Great buy December 23, 2020
Reviewer: ZACHARY SCHMIDT from Defuniak Springs, FL United States  
I picked up my 1886/93 lebel today. With the research I have done and the previous reviews on other firearms other people have bought, i was very nervous on what i would receive. After opening the box and looking inside i couldn't be happier. The rife had no damage or missing parts that I could find so far. The packing job was a lot better then what I had received on my smle that I got several months earlier. I can see they took the advice on better packaging.The condition of the wood and the finish on the metal was far better than I had expected. All parts move with no issue. I would recommend this rifle if the others are at or near the same condition. When I called the customer service number to change my order they were very helpful.
