Details

Known as the Carabineros Yataghan 1908, these side arms were produced by the German firm Alex Coppel of Solingen for the Policías Fiscales (Fiscal Police).

This sidearm utilizes the blade and crosspiece of the French Model 1874 Gras sword bayonet, mated to a cast brass hilt. The blade is shortened and the muzzle ring adjustment screw ground flush. The Model 1874 scabbard has the French frog loop replaced with a stylized brass frog stud and a brass chape added to close the shortened scabbard body.

Increasing unrest and protests by Marxists gave rise to the need for a national police force. The Policías Fiscales were established in 1896 and became Chile’s first professional police. Although a police force, the Policías Fiscales also were involved in social policy related to children, establishing evening schools to educate poor children and their working parents; and shelters to keep orphaned and abandoned children away from street crime. In 1927, the Policías Fiscales and Arma dei Carabinieri (a mounted rural paramilitary police) merged to create the Carabineros de Chile, Chile’s present-day national police.
