    RARE, Crimean War 1855 Dated, French Model 1853 Chatellerault Arsenal Infantry Chasseur Sharpshooter’s Muzzle loading .700 Minie Ball Calibre Percussion Rifle With Brass Hilt Chatellerault Arsenal Yataghan Sword Bayonet & Scabbard. Sn 16225 - 16225

    This is a rare and desirable French Minie Rifle of the Crimean War, together with its correct and well fitting bayonet. It is a Model 1853 Infantry Rifle, as issued to and used by the elite Chasseur Units in the Crimea. The rifle is dated 1855, the middle of the Crimean War, and was made at the French Royal Manufactory at Chatellerault. It has a flat Minie sight, graduated to 1,100 metres, and has the same four grooves and similar bore as the longer and more cumbersome British issue Minie rifle, 0.702 inches (17.8mm). The bore of the 34” barrel has well defined rifling and just light staining consistent with age and use. It measures 49 ½” overall length. The metal work has even patina is dated 1855, signed by the Chatellerault Arsenal and has proof marks. The metal is numbered ‘523’ which is repeated on the all original wood stock which has just light bumps and bruises to be expected. The barrel has the correct military bayonet lug, sling swivels and it has its original steel ram rod. The rifle’s cocking & firing actions work correctly with a nice tight action. The rifle comes with an original French sword bayonet. The steel fullered single edged ‘T’ back Yataghan blade has staining consistent with age and is 22 ¾” length. It has the correct steel hooked quillon with muzzle ring. It has a ribbed brass grip with flat spring and steel push button. The blade is marked with the name of the French Chatellerault Arsenal in French. It is complete with the correct steel scabbard. The scabbard has no dents and has its original fixed strap bar. The price for this historic piece includes UK delivery. NB. As an antique percussion rifle no licence is required to own this weapon in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 16225
