    It's a Frenchicon Mle 1884 Gras-Kropatschek unless I am mistaken, though I am no expert on French firearms.

    "...Mle 1884 Gras-Kropatschek..." Yep. I'm guessing St. Etienne. Can't quite make it out in the picture. The 'More" link at the bottom works. More and more detailed pictures.
    84 French Kropatchek
