    I'm not so sure that it's cut down. I seem to remember them offering a carbine version of the zouave for a short time. Appears to be in very nice condition. Congrats and good luck with it.

    This was a standard Carbine model "Zouave" offered by Zoli. My room mate in College has/had one just like it.

    Thanks to all who help me ID this thing. I had heard about the carbine but never seen one in the wild. Either way it fills the bill nicely.

    I got it for WAAAAAY cheaper than this one: http://flintlocksetc.com/rj_navy.html

    Chorizo,
    Ain't that rifle just a thing of beauty? It also says "I mean business". I've killed two deer with my Zouave (also have a BH but haven't taken it hunting yet). The minie ball went in the right front shoulder and exited the left ham and didn't ruin 2 oz of meat. They're short, handy around vehicles and powerful.

    Big disappointment today. The company shipped the wrong gun! Now I have to wait another 11 days to get my gun.

    Minies or round balls?

    Do you have a source of minie balls and/or round balls? Harry in Pa.

    your accuracy will suffer unless you get the proper fit on your round. Go to your local machine chop and have them mic your barrel and then order rounds .001 under bore size. More then that and it'll be luck shots past 75-100 yards
