The Rossignol ENT is an experimental French assault rifle.

HistoryEdit

The ENT was an experimental rifle part of a project initiated by the French army in 1890, to find a semi-automatic rifle to replace the aging Lebel Model 1886 rifle. At least 5 variants of the ENT were made, the A1, A2, A4 and A5. The ENT A5 emerged as offering industrial potential due to its direct impingement system. However, the ENT lost out to the Meunier rifle, which was later adopted from 1910.

Design DetailsEdit

The ENT was the first weapon to use the direct gas impingement system; this system would later be incorporated into the Ljungman rifle and the MAS-49.

AmmunitionEdit

The weapon fired a 6×60mm round.
