CHARLEVILLE CARBINE FLINTLOCK RIFLENobleWares Image of non-firing replica of Charleville Carbine Flintlock Rifle model 1037 by Denix of Spain 1037 by DENIX
This is a shortened "carbine" version of the Charleville modeled after the French 1763 musket, and was widely used in the colonies and against British troops in the Revolutionary War. The carbine was originally a lighter, shortened weapon developed for the cavalry. A carbine was typically no longer than a sheathed sabre, both arranged to hang with their tops clear of the rider’s elbows and bottoms clear of the horse’s legs. This non-firing replica has all of the features of the original, including a full length wood stock with antique grey finish barrel, frizzen, and lock plate assembly, beautifully complemented by antique brass finished trigger guard, stock furniture and butt plate. Rotate the frizzen, cock the hammer, and pull the trigger – the hammer falls just as it did for the early American cavalry and colonials more than 200 years ago.

non-firing replica of Charleville Carbine Flintlock Rifle model 1037 by Denix of Spain
  Carbines were short enough to be loaded and fired from horseback but this was rarely done - a moving horse is a very unsteady platform, and once halted a soldier can load and fire more easily if dismounted, which also makes him a smaller target. The principal advantage of the carbine's length was portability. Troops could carry full length muskets comfortably enough on horseback if just riding from A to B (the practice of the original dragoons and later mounted infantry). Cavalry proper (a 'Regiment of Horse') had to ride with some agility and engage in sword-wielding melees with opposing cavalry so carrying anything long would be a dangerous encumbrance.
Note: You must 18 years of age or older to purchase this pistol. These handsome collector model guns are made of antique finished zinc cast metal and polished European hardwoods. The screw heads are molded into the metal and cannot be removed. These models cannot withstand misuse or excessive dry-firing. Cannot be made to fire real ammunition.
