Approbasjon av kammerladningsgevær modell 1846
Det norske kammerladningsgeværet modell 1846 ble approbert. Geværene ble produsert i Norge ved Kongsberg Våpenfabrikk, ved A. Francotte i Liège i Belgia og Våpenfabrikken Crause i Herzberg i nåværende Tyskland. Modell 1846 var en forbedret utgave av modell 1842, som var den første approberte kammerladermodellen. Et uforandret modell 1846 kammerladningsgevær er i dag svært sjeldent og det kjennes kun få eksemplarer.
