For anyone that’s interested here is a link to a French forum that discusses the M94 bused by the French military in 1914-1918.

All in French of course.

 

The link is from a post on the Great War Forum by Keith_history-buff., so credit to him for posting.

That 1894 carbine in the photo looks absent of a barrel band.  Am I missing something?

Yes–“carabine” has a diff meaning in French:  “rifle,” as in: “La Longue Carabine.”  Read “Last of the Mohicans” again.

But it doesn’t look like a rifle to me.  It has a carbine butt stock and looks like a carbine forearm to me–there’s no rifle forearm cap (zoom in on the photo).
