Girandoni Air Rifle As Used By Lewis and Clark

The National Firearms Museum put together this great video about one of the most historic and unique rifles in American History.  Phil Schreier, the Senior Curator of the museum does a fantastic job bringing this unique firearm into the spotlight.  Most people aren’t aware that air rifles existed in the late 1700’s not to mention the role this particular rifle played in the Lewis and Clark Expedition.  It’s a great watch.  Enjoy.
