Comblain Patent Carbine Model 1 of 1873
Artillery and Enigineers carbine for the Army of the Empire of Brazil, circa 1873.
This one manufactured by Beuret Freres of Liege, calibre 11 mm X 42 mm Rimmed Belgian and Brazilian carbine cartridge.
The carbine comes with the 1873 Comblain bayonet.
For reference see the Gun Report of November 2004, pages 29+30, article by Jonathan Kirton. This carbine is from the author's collection.
As only 4000 carbines of this model were ordered and, coupled with a very low survival rate, it is a very scarce military carbine
