WW2 1940 Italian Fascist Military Youth Gioventù Italiana del Littorio (GIL) Marked Beretta Fabbrica Nazionale d’Armi-Brescia (FNA-B) 5.5mm Blank Cartridge Bolt Action ‘Balilla’(Boy’s) Training Carbine (Reduced Size Carcano Mod 1891) - 15913
In 1926, after barely four years in power and following Mussolini’s expressed desire to provide pre-military training and to arm Italian youths beginning at a very young age, the fascists established the Opera Nazionale Balilla (ONB) youth organization. The term “Balilla” evoked the memory of a young boy, Giovan Battista Perasso, whose nickname was Balilla, who on December 5, 1746, touched off a popular revolt against the Hapsburg occupiers in Genoa. By December 10, the revolt had managed to free the city from the Austrian troops. The ONB program encompassed boys from six to 18 years of age, organized along military lines, who, depending on their age group, were issued uniforms and weapons of various types ranging from strictly toy weapons to light machine guns. In October 1937, the ONB was replaced by the Gioventù Italiana del Littorio (GIL). In response to a request by the Youth Organisation, production began of a very faithful blank-firing copy approximately four-fifths the size of the corresponding full-size Carcano moschetto modello 1891carbine. These small carbines were designated the moschetto regolamentare Balilla modello 1891 ridotto (reduced size Model 1891 Balilla regulation carbine). Three different firms were associated with the manufacture of the Balilla blank-firing carbines: Napoleone & Vittorio Castelli (usually referred to as Castelli), Fabbrica Nazionale d’Armi-Brescia (more commonly referred to as FNB) and Fratelli Grazian (Grazian Brothers). In all respects, the Balilla is a very faithful reduced-scale version of the regulation Carcano cavalry carbine. The calibre of the weapon is conventionally referred to as 5.5mm, which is the diameter of the “bullet” of the dummy carrier cartridge used with the weapon. The regulation weapon has an overall length of 36 ¼” with bayonet folded closed. Our example is a just 29 ¾”. This is an excellent original example of the reduced size ‘Balilla’ Training Carbine. It has all original wood and metalwork & is equipped with original folding bayonet. It has a steel butt plate with trap, sling bar, adjustable rear sight and block & blade fore sight. The breech is stamped with Fascist youth Organisation, manufacturer and WW2 date marks, ‘GIL’ with organisation arms (Gioventù Italiana del Littorio), ‘FNB’ (Beretta Fabbrica Nazionale d’Armi-Brescia) and ‘1940’ together with ‘XVIII’ & ‘Grazan Verona’ (all illustrated). The stock is stamped with number '47238' and indistinct roundel. The carbine strips, cocks & dry fires as it should. As a blank firing training rifle no licence is required to own this item in the UK. Price includes deactivation certificate & UK delivery. Sn 15913

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.

This is an excellent original example of the British 1853 Pattern rifled musket manufactured under contract to British War Department by Robbins and Lawrence, Windsor, Vermont, USA in 1856.

Insufficient numbers were being produced in the United Kingdom and, despite a contract for their manufacture being placed in Belgium, further assistance from both the United States and France was sought. An American contact was swiftly set up in February 1855 for 25,000 US rifle muskets, altered to the Enfield bore, to be made by Robbins and Lawrence of Windsor, Vermont. The American produced Enfields were stamped 'WINDSOR' on the lock. Although the contract was for 25,000 weapons, due to financial difficulties only 16,000 were produced in America for the British Army and marked ‘Windsor’. This is a very rare, original example of the Crimean War American contract 1853 Pattern 2-band Percussion Rifled Musket. The side plate is correctly stamped ‘Windsor’ and has the Queens crown (Victoria) together with ‘1856’ date. It has an excellent all original walnut stock, brass butt plate, brass trigger guard with extended tang, steel fore end block and original steel ram rod. It is without bayonet lug. The butt plate tang is crisply Regiment marked '4 L' (4th Lancers) together with 434 (weapon number) & date ‘1. 58’ (Jan 1858) indicating issue to the lancers post Crimean War. The musket has a block and blade fore sight, sling swivels and ladder rear sight. The barrel has a clean bore with 3 groove rifling. Total length is 46" with a 30" barrel.
