The first photographs in this gallery are of the Reffye Mitrailleuse 'General Duchand', which can be seen in the courtyard of the Musée de l'Armée in the Hotel des Invalides, Paris. There used to be two examples, but sadly there is now only one, and the operating mechanism has been removed.

These are followed by a selections of Montigny Mitrailleuse photographs. The guns can be seen at the Army Museum in Brussels and the Curtius Museum in Liége. The photographs in this gallery can be expanded to by clicking on the image.
