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.

For shipping costs and other details see our Muskets section
If upon receiving your musket you are not completely happy with your purchase, you may return it for a refund. All we ask is you cover the shipping costs. It has to be returned in two weeks of receipt and be in its original state (unaltered and unmodified).
We sell historically accurate muskets in a non-firing state. This allows us to comply with local, state, national and international firearms regulations. A certified gunsmith may alter a musket or pistol to a firing state by drilling the vent hole and test firing it. We are not legally responsible for any alteration from its present non-firing state.
