To the I fire, since the ball cannot leave, the collar of the box is stretched and the gas pass in the room of throw of the tromboncino across four holes supplying the necessary energy to the throw of the bomb. After the throw of the bomb, opening the shutter, come espulsi the box extinguished and the bullet, that it is stopped against an appropriate one I stand out. This model of tromboncino was struck off from the service in 1934, but when had been built the arms I model 1891/38 in the initial caliber of 7.35, had been re-used reserves of arsenal, given that the pipes usurate of the caliber 6.5 were easily convertible in this new caliber.

I fire it in two cases it is carried out always working on the trigger of the musket. For the puntamento in the shot to bullet s' employs the normal line of sight; in the shot with the tromboncino s' employs instead a second line of sight, determined from an additional notch on the left to the standing d' I lift to regulate and from a fixing viewfinder sideways on the political left of the musket. The notch of the second line of sight can take on the decisive positions from three engravings imprinted in red on the edge dell' left wing of the I clatter d' I lift, and marked from the numbers 1-1,5 and 2, to which comes fixing the standing d' I lift to second that the distance of the target is of 100, 150 or 200 meters.
