MATCHING NUMBERS, WW1 Era French 8mm Calibre Berthier Manufacture d'armes Châtellerault, Model 1916 (M16) Cavalry Carbine. Sn 10765 10765

The French Berthier carbine was adopted by the French Military in 1916 and saw service with the French Army in the latter stages of WW1. Later due to shortages of weapons the carbines saw service in WW2. These weapons were issued to mounted troops, Cavalry and the French Foreign Legion. The M16 was designed by Émile Berthier, a mechanical engineer in La Compagnie Bône-Guelma (one of the five subsidiary companies of the Algerian Railway System). This is an excellent original example. The total length of the carbine is 37 1/2". It has a folded over bolt lever to prevent it being caught when used by the Cavalry. The carbine has all original undamaged woodwork. The breech is marked with inspection marks and 'Châtellerault M16'. The stock is stamped '27326'. The trigger guard, barrel and bolt are stamped with matching numbers '61577'. The weapon has a steel butt plate, bayonet bar, block and blade foresight, ladder rear sight, sling anchor in stock and Cavalry saddle ring. It strips, cocks and dry fires. The price includes deactivation certificate and UK delivery. Sn 10765
