Flobert Monte Cristo 6 mm., 1856

Flobert gun was created by French inventor Louis Nicolas Flobert in 1845. Flobert's cartridge contained a percussion cap and small lead bullet but no propellant charge so the bullet was thrown only by the energy of the percussion cap. Such cartridge could be used only for recreation indoor shooting. Flobert rifles and pistols were popular until early 20th century. A trade mark Monte –°risto is often used when speaking about Flobert guns.
