This is no ordnance rifle of the Austrian army. The differences are too much, see the fotos of the original 1854 rifle. I think it is a rifle ordered on a private base for use in a shooting...

There are some strange signs on the blade of this rapier. Perhaps there is somebody here who knows the meaning of them.

here is an other one with signature "Mit Gott fuer Koenig und Vaterland" and the Solingen rose at the spine. So I think this was in use with officers of Prussian militia troops.
