1868, Belgian, Albini-Braendlin Front Hinge Breech 11mm Calibre Military Service Rifle. A 539 - A 539
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 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 1/2" barrel which is clean with crisp rifling and measures 53 1/2" overall.
