    ALL MATCHING NUMBERS INCLUDING STRIKER BOLT & CLEANING ROD, 1867 Belgian Military, Albini-Braendlin Front Hinge Breech 11mm Obsolete Calibre Military Service Rifle. Sn 15866 - 15866

    The Albini rifle (or Albini-Braendlin rifle) was a single-shot 11mm rifle adopted by Belgium in 1867. The action on the Albini rifle was designed by an Italian officer Augusto Albini and was perfected by an English gunsmith, Francis Braendlin. The rifle has a front-hinged, forward lifting action that has a mechanism which works together with the hammer-striker assembly to simultaneously lock and fire the rifle. When fired, the striker bolt moves into the back of the breech block striking the firing pin and locking the block in place at ignition. Both striker and firing pin move in the same line as the rifle bore. Pulling the hammer back withdraws the striker from the breech block allowing it to be lifted on its pivot pin by means of a small fixed knob on the right side of the block. This is an excellent example of the Albini-Braendlin 11mm calibre service rifle. It has 33 ½” barrel which is clean with crisp rifling and measures 53 ½” overall. It has all original wood work which has just the bumps and bruises to be expected with age and steel butt plate. It also has a steel trigger guard with extended tang, adjustable graduated ladder rear sight, block and blade foresight, bayonet block, sling swivels and original steel cleaning rod. It has the correct hinged breech and heavy military hammer. The barrel is stamped with inspection marks and '1867'. The central barrel band, butt plate, barrel, striker bolt and cleaning rod have matching numbers ‘709’. The loading and firing actions work perfectly. Price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre weapon no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 15866
