French Light Cavalry Carbine - Pattern 1816

fr_carb1.jpg (30132 bytes)

Pattern 1816 French Light Cavalry Carbine This was a significant departure from the usually design of a carbine. In place of having to return the ramrod after firing each time, many a time dropping it in the heat of battle, this model was designed without a place for a ramrod. Instead the dashing hussar hung the ramrod with ease from his person, thus reportedly increasing the light cavalryman's rate of fire.

As the photographs attest, this replica is quite well assembled, complete with the appropriate lock plate markings of the royal arsenal. While the frizzen (hammer) is not case hardened and the vent is not drilled (read details below), its lock functions the same as the originals. A fine addition to any collection.
