Slaget ved Curupaity
Slaget ved Curupaity var et av de viktigste slagene under trippelalliansekrigen der Argentina, Brasil og Uruguay kjempet mot Paraguay.
Om morgenen den 22. september 1866 angrep alliansen de befestede paraguayanske skyttergravene ved Curupaity. Paraguayanerene var under kommando av general José E. Díaz. Posisjonen ble holdt av 5 000 menn og 49 kanoner hvorav noen var gjemt utenfor angriperenes synsfelt.
Den brasilianske marinen ga støtteild til de 20 000 angriperene, men måtte holde avstand på grunn av kanonene på fortet i Humaitá, som da ledet til at beskytningen fra skipene ble unøyaktig og hadde mindre innvirkning. Paraguayanerene klarte i tillegg å lokke den brasilianske beskytningen mot en tom skyttergrav mens de paraguayanske troppene befant seg på et annet sted. Omtrent 20 prosent av de 20 000 allierte troppene falt under slaget mens Paraguay tapte mindre enn 100 menn.

Norway was one of the first countries in the world, perhaps even the first, which adopted a repeating bolt action rifle for the armed forces. The rifle was invented by the Norwegian engineer J. S. Jarmann, and was adopted in 1884. The rifle was modern in 1884, but already obsolete in 1894. This is the story of the Jarmann rifle.

For sale: a Beaumont Vitali rifleFor 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.
receiver number Y106
