1777 french cavalry carbine
Another new offering
from Loyalist Arms.
The 1777 Cavalry
and Napoleonic reenactors can now obtain an affordable French carbine,
from your friends at Loyalist Arms & Repairs.
This carbine follows the same overall appearance as the 1777 French
Infantry musket, except for length and only 2 barrel bands. The lock is slightly smaller, as is all the hardware. These carbines were made by armouries in St. Etienne, Charleville,
Maubege and Tulle, although many people today, refer to these muskets & carbines produced from the 1760's-1816
collectively, as Charleville muskets. The trigger bow, butt plate, and front barrel band are of brass. Bayonet lug is located on bottom of barrel. .
Close up of lock showing similiarity to the 1777 infantry
musket. Has " M.re
imp de St.etienne"
in script on the lock plate. Available in .65 cal, w. 30" barrel. Flash pan is brass. There is no accommodation for a sling, (ie.
swivels), only a sling bar. .
Has proper saddle ring bar installed on the left side of lower barrel
band. Lower band is iron, just like the originals. This model is very similar to the 1782 carbine and musket de board,
(ship musket). By removing the sling bar, this carbine will appear very close to
the ships musket. These carbines served the armies & navies of King Louis, revolutionary
France, and Napoleon across Europe. They, were also used by several other
European powers during this period. Some, may even have found their way to North America. Many of these firearms survived the Napoleonic era, and were converted
to percussion in the late 1830's. .
