    Pattern 1841 Carbine

    This example comes from the design of George Lovell a smoothbore.

    The 30 inch barrel is in the new Reduced Bore of .733, a reduction of .020 from the Regulation .753 of the Infantry Musket but intended to still use the same cartridge loaded with a ball of .685.

    Barrel by Millward, lock by William Partridge, assembled by J. Cook, stocked by S. Butler, main contractor Potts & Hunt.

    Bayonets fitted with the Lovell lug are different from the usual Lovells as they have sockets four inches long instead of the usual three inches. Those for the Artillery had the common infantry triangular blade but for the Sappers used a long flat sword blade.

    In the Crimea the Sappers used this firearm model but the Royal Artillery were equipped with the new Pattern 1853 Carbine Rifled with 24 inch barrel in .577.

    Hélder Agostinho,
    Great job!
    Is this available anywhere? & is it being cast in white metal?
