EMPEELO

Do you see the mark of Belgian test?

I donít say the ELG, but the Peron, that appears on all Belgian weapon.

We donít have the right to dismantle this weapon; this is the property of the Museum Ferreira da Cunha.

This carbine EMPEELO in bore 303 British is a mystery for us.

We have specialists who affirm that they were used in the navy of Brazil.

Others, between which includes Adler, say that not.

Iím certain that it is not the standart weapon equipment in Brazil, because already in 1890 Brazil used "Komission 88" in the army and "Kropatcheck 8 mm" in the navy, both with repetition, and it is not possible that it adopted a weapon with only one shot, even into .303, different from those used here.

An explanation which seems logical is that these weapons were in the boat that Brazil bought in England in 1905.

This carbine EMPEELO belongs to the Particular Museum Ferreira da Cunha , of the city of Petropolis, that is in the State of Rio De Janeiro, and that in them it made the gentility to allow to photograph.

Many thanks to this museum for the pictures
