23 April 1716

Det andre slaget om Moss
Det andre slaget om Moss var et av de få større sammenstøtene under Karl 12s første felttog i Norge i 1716. Mellom 2 000 og 3 000 soldater deltok i det som ble et hardt og blodig slag. Den norske erobringen av Moss sluttførte strategien som gikk ut på å avskjære den svenske hæren på cirka 6 000 mann i og omkring Christiania.

Tapet av Moss tvang svenskene til å trekke seg ut av fra Christiania, en uke senere. 30 nordmenn og 100 svensker var blitt drept under de rasende kampene, og i tillegg var mange såret. Selv om svenskene hadde prestert et sterkt forsvar mot de norske soldatene, var hele garnisonen utslettet, med 100 døde og et stort antall tatt til fange. 43 offiserer og underoffiserer sammen med 468 menige, til sammen mellom 511 og 520 svensker var tatt til fange. Svenskene hadde nå i løpet av to slag om Moss mistet over tusen mann, de fleste tatt som fanger.

    For sale: a Beaumont Vitali rifle

    For sale: A Dutch Beaumont rifle made by P. Stevens in Maastricht The Netherlands. It was made in 1874 as a single shot rifle and transformed to a magazine rifle in 1890 for the Dutch army. It doesn't have the small cracks in the wood around the magazine (a known weak spot). All Beaumont Vitali's lack the cleaning rod unfortunately. It has good rifling and good working mechanism. The magazine and rear sight still have the "dirty" type blueing.

    I have lots of pictures, so ask for more.

    Sales price is 530 euros incl. shipping to Norway with DPD.
