Very Rare 1793 Versailles carbine by Boutet. Swamped barrel is just over 25 1/2"" and has correct 7 groove rifle. All markings are sharp and clear on the barrel and lock. Lock is marked ""Mre Imp Le. De Versailles"". These guns were designed by Nicholas Boutet who was the gun maker to the King and considered one of the finest gun makers of the period. These rifles were made in his shop. Wood is very good with a small crack on left hand side of the stock. The stock should extend to the muzzle but has been shortened 1 1/4"". This can be easily fixed by a proper gunsmith. Very desirable scarce gun.
