CHARLEVILLE CARBINE FLINTLOCK RIFLE 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.
