Original British East India Company Brown Bess Musket with Bannister Rail Stock- Marked Nock, Dated 1787
Original Item: Only One Available. Completely original this was recently discovered from our Nepalese purchase of 2003. The stock is completely original to the 1780s having a bannister rail butt, all brass furniture and a 39-inch E.I.C. barrel.
Very few of the Brown Bess muskets recovered from Nepal had complete wood stocks, this being one of the few. Gurkha Battalion markings to both brass butt plate and brass trigger guard, this is quite an exceptional example. Fully cleaned and ready to display!
