In 1816 the French Artillery Commission decided to create a new Government manufactory in the centre of France: Châtellerault. In 1822, in parallel with swords production, the fabrication of firearms started. The French government decided in 1836 - 1837 to close the firearms manufactories of Maubeuge and Charleville, close to the northern border of the country, and to transfer their production to Châtellerault and Saint-Etienne. The Maunfacture Nationale d'Armes de Chatellerault (MAC) continued to produce firearms until 1968.
