This rifle, bearing serial number 7, was manufactured in 1914 and was later sent to the U.S. Army Arsenal at Springfield, Massachusetts for testing and evaluation. All members of the Chinese delegation, returning to China with American manufacturing samples and machinery, were lost when the boat sank in transit. The Liu Rifle can be found in Gallery 15, Freedom's Doorway, at the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia.
