    WW1 Era French Army & Foriegn Legion 8mm Calibre Berthier Manufacture d'Armes Châtellerault, Model 1916 (M16) Cavalry Carbine With Early Matching numbers French Mannlicher Berthier M1892 Sword Bayonet With Hook Quillon & Scabbard. D 1316 - D 1316

    The French Berthier carbine was adopted by the French Military in 1916 and saw service with the French & Belgian Armies in 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 a very good 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 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 rifle comes with an original French Mannlicher Berthier M1892 Bayonet & Scabbard (see page 98 White & Watts 'The Bayonet Book, item 213). The bayonet has a straight single edged polished sword blade with fuller which measures 15 3/4" in length. The blade has a notch on both sides near to the cross guard which locks the bayonet in the scabbard. It has early version smooth composite grips secured by two rivets (later versions had wood grips). The hook quillon is stamped on one side "14917". The steel pommel has a push release which operates as it should. The scabbard is steel and has a metal belt loop which is also stamped with a matching number "14917". The price includes deactivation certificate and UK delivery. D 1316
