The Imperial Armoury Company is a privately-owned government contractor for the production of small arms and artillery. It was originally founded under the name of the Imperial Small Arms and Rifle Company (ISA&R) in 1787, by a group of twelve investors and gun makers. From its inception in 1787 to 1798 the company produced civilian hunting muskets and rifles, as well as a number of children's toys. When the government initiated a series of extensive reforms in 1799 for the infantry branch of the Imperial Army, large numbers of government contracts were given to arms companies to design and produce various small arms, sabres, artillery, and other military equipment. The Imperial Small Arms and Rifle Company received a contract to design and produce a standard-issue smoothbore firearm, along with seventeen other companies. After a series of tests and competitions, the ISA&R design was adopted to be the Army's new standard-issue musket. Soon after, in 1801, the company changed its name to the Imperial Armoury Company, when it also expanded production into other various military equipment, such as cannons, swords, cavalry equipment, military clothing, and even toys. The Imperial Armoury Company is the number one producer of small arms for the Imperial military, and the third largest producer of artillery pieces. Besides providing for the government of New Equestria, the Imperial Armoury Company also produces under private and foreign contracts, as well as maintaining a presence in the civilian sector. The Company owns three arms factories, a cannon foundary, twenty two offices, a private arsenal, and a significant number of small gunsmiths and tailor shops. We pride ourselves on our reliability, quality, and innovation.

The Imperial Armoury Company produces some of the best quality weapons and munitions on the market. With designs from the greatest gun smiths in the Empire, produced from the highest quality materials, and manufactured with revolutionary new techniques, you can rely on Imperial Armoury to deliver quality and affordable weapons. Whether you're a nation looking to equip your military, a private militia, individual, historical organization, or something in between, Imperial Armoury has what you're looking for. In addition to a vast array of weapons, from pistols to siege artillery, Imperial Armoury produces a number of munitions and cartridges that are also available for purchase. All munitions are carefully crafted and handled to ensure the highest possible level of safety, especially when undergoing shipment.

To aid in the production and delivery of arms, the Imperial Armoury Company is also opening facilities in foreign nations. If you would like to have Imperial Armoury open a facility in your nation, please submit the appropriate form. What are the benefits of opening such facilities? First and foremost is economy. By opening an Imperial Armoury facility in your nation, you will be creating jobs for your citizens, as well as further stimulating your nation's economy. Additional cash-flow, the opening of shops and stores, greater amounts of goods, and increased competition all provide substantial economic benefits for your nation, and should serve incentives to take advantage of this opportunity. In addition to economic benefits, you will receive business benefits such as expedited orders, order priority, and even discounts on contracts. By opening an Imperial Armoury facility within your nation, not only are you helping us, but you're helping us to help you.

If you would like to order weapons or munitions, please review the proper despatch guidelines outlined below. In order to streamline communications, we have a pre-written letter provided for your convenience, but you are welcome to write us your own. We only ask that you include all the necessary information we require to complete your purchase. Special orders can also be accepted, though at additional cost, and should we find the design a good one, we may adopt it as a standard pattern weapon (simply acknowledge if you wish for us to do so). Weapons can be purchased in bulk under a contract, or individually, though for munitions there is a minimum on the purchased quantity for the order to be accepted (this is listed per munition). All orders are shipped under a flag of civil neutrality, recognized by all nations, so their safe passage is ensured. If you still desire, we offer two insurance plans available for purchase up to the ship day of your order.

Despatch Guidelines
1: All despatches must include type of weapons and/or munitions being purchased and number of each. Otherwise the order will not be accepted.
2: Any information not included will be assumed as a "no."
3: You are welcome to include any other information you may think to be relevant.
4: Despatches must be made "In-Character" and with reasonable English grammar.
5: Despatches should be made with consideration given to national tech levels (please refer to the "Tech Lvl Notice").

Nations of all tech levels are welcome to purchase arms and munitions from Imperial Armoury, and no one will be disallowed from purchasing a product on the basis of tech level. All that is asked is respect be given to the tech level of the storefront (for instance, not asking for any future tech designs), as well as that of other nations. Thank you.

Muskets & Carbines

Pattern 1800 Musket

The Pattern 1800 Musket was the first musket designed and produced for the New Equestrian Imperial Army, and adopted as standard issue. It was the predecessor to the Pattern 1806, and remains in limited service, mainly with militia and reserve units. The Pattern 1800 is of sturdy construction, and known to be better suited for foul weather than other muskets. It was designed particularly with melee combat in mind, and as such the stock is slightly more dense than found on traditional muskets, resulting in the higher weight. In addition, these muskets were manufactured rather than forged, and implement various other cost saving features, thus leading to their being in cheaper abundance, though of slightly lesser quality.

Image

Type: Infantry Smoothbore Musket
Weight: 12 pounds
Length: 58 inches
Barrel Length: 42 inches
Barrel Calibre: .75 inches
Cartridge/Munition: .72 musket ball
Action: Flintlock
Effective Range: 50 - 75 yards
Maximum Range: 100 yards
Other Details: Oak stock, three heat treated steel barrel bands, wrought iron ribbon-barrel, brass finishings

Purchase Cost: 10 NSD

Pattern 1806 Musket

This three banded infantry musket was designed as an improvement over the Pattern 1800 Musket, which was the company's first contracted design under the then Imperial Small Arms and Rifle Company. The Pattern 1806 offers extended barrel length, reduced weight, sturdier construction, and a simpler action, with better overall practicality and reliability. It uses a 20 inch socket bayonet and .69 calibre standard musket ball, which was chosen over the original .72 ball for reduced weight. The model 1806 is intended as a standard issue infantry weapon for regular army infantry units and militia. Variants include the Pattern 1806 Carbine and Pattern 1806 Naval Musket. The Pattern 1806 Musket, being a smoothbore firearm, is most effective when used en masse, with a maximum effective range of 125 yards, though able too fire out to 150 yards with reasonable accuracy. The Pattern 1806 is a good all around weapon, well priced, and a good choice for the outfit of any army.

Image


Type: Infantry Smoothbore Musket
Weight: 10.2 pounds
Overall Length: 60 inches
Barrel Length: 44 inches
Barrel Calibre: .71 inches
Cartridge/Munition: .69 musket ball
Action: Flintlock
Effective Range: 50 - 100 yards
Maximum Range: 125 yards
Other Details: Walnut stock, three heat treated steel barrel bands, wrought iron forged-barrel, brass finishings

Purchase Cost: 15 NSD

Pattern 1812 Musket

The Pattern 1812 features additional weight saving measures and slightly reduced length over the Pattern 1806. It uses the same .69 standard musket ball, and a 22 inch socket bayonet to make up for reduced musket length. The 1812, being lighter, is better suited for long marches and offers less strain for the soldiers it is issued to, though does not perform as well in bayonet combat as the 1806. Other minor improvements over the Pattern 1806 have resulted in a longer lifespan for P1812s, as well as slightly increased accuracy and range. Variants include the Pattern 1812 carbine, Pattern 1812 Naval Musket, and Pattern 1812 rifle.
