Default Austrian sword for identification and comment

Hi,

Anybody knows anything about this particular sword model?
Austrian for sure.
Maker A.Striberny.
Unusual brass grip.
Seems like hussar cavalry sword.

A composite?

The handle is from a sword Briquet.

With those langets and that quillon end ? I wouldn't think so
Maybe the grip ... but not the whole hilt

astute observation Multumesc.
At a closer look it really seems that the grip is modified from a common briquet.

One wonders about the guard as well, it's rather roughly cast and not well finished. Hard to see but the tang nut looks to be modern?
