SOLD SOLD (LAY-AWAY 08/12) **RARE**1848 Torino Arsenal Italian Piedmont-Sardinia .750 Musket Calibre Percussion Cavalry Carbine. Sn 19365 - 19365
This is a very nice, unusual variant of the scarce Torrino Arsenal Italian Piedmont-Sardinia 750 Musket Calibre Percussion Cavalry Carbine. Prior to Italian unification in 1861, what is modern day Italy was comprised of a number of smaller kingdoms, dukedoms and states, much like the German states of that era. The island of Sardinia was one of the larger and more powerful Italian states, and by 1815 had absorbed the Kingdoms of Piedmont and Nice (which it relinquished in 1860 to France), the Duchy of Savoy, the Duchy of Monferrato, portions of the Duchy of Milan, as well as several other Italian territories. In 1861, the Kingdom of Sardinia became the founding and controlling power of the new Kingdom of Italy. During the early 1840’s the Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia adopted its first percussion ignition military long arm, the Piedmont Musket. The musket was based on the French M-1822 flintlock musket, but was a percussion arm. They were produced by contractors in Liege, Belgium, as well as at the state arsenal in the capital of Torino. In 1845 the Sardinian military adopted a cavalry carbine based upon the M-1844 musket. Belgian gun makers, both in Liege, and apparently in Torino, produced these arms as well. Our Piedmont cavalry carbine has the correct brass fittings, original steel ram rod and sling swivels. It has a blade fore sight and ‘v’ notch block rear sight on the barrel shank. The 13” barrel has factory inspector’s marks and 1848 date. The barrel’s bore has faint rifling and staining & residue consistent with age & use. The action plate has Torino arsenal marks. The small carbine is 28” overall length. The gun cocks and dry fires crisply. The price includes UK delivery. NB as an antique muzzle loading carbine no licence is required to own this carbine in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 19365
