    ~ 1838 Marked Izhvesk Arsenal Imperial Russian Cavalry Carbine ~


    Here we have a rather interesting look at what is most likely a cavalry carbine liberated from the Crimea by a British soldier. A rather odd piece from the Russians at the time as it is almost an exact copy of the French muzzle loading muskets of the era.

    With some wear this carbine is a wonderful piece of Crimean War memorabilia, telling the story of the period’s arms technology, the military legacy of the Crimean war and the Allied victory that led to this carbine being here.

    The carbine made from a dark stained hardwood with brass and blackened steel fittings, a functional steel percussion lock and stamped lock plate and its original ramrod. It doesn’t have a mark on the cavalryman's belt bar.

    The lock plate is stamped with the Izhvesk armoury in 1838, there are some later conversions and refits with much of the brass fittings being replaced in 1839 and the forward sling mount is stamped 1841.

    In 2015 a Tula Arsenal stamped cavalry carbine sold at auction at Bonham’s for £17,500.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The carbine weighs 3.650 Kg.

    The carbine is 46 inches (117 cm) long.

    The barrel is 30 inches (76 cm) long.

    The stock is 4 inches (10 cm) tall.

    The carbine is 4 inches wide from the bar strap to the lock.

    ~ Condition ~

    The carbine is in good condition for its age.

    The wood has some scuffs and marks but overall has a good finish to the furniture.

    The belt bar and ring has some surface rust.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £25 or the item can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard....Read full description
