Original British East India Company Third Model Brown Bess with TOWER Crown GR Lock- Circa 1795

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. One of the first third model Brown Bess muskets to be made actually incorporating the acorn adorned 2nd model trigger guard indicating manufacture in the early 1790s.

This fine example has the correct 39-inch barrel (with what appear to be Sikh proof marks), square tang, brass furniture and flintlock mechanism marked TOWER with Crown/G.R. The most notable feature is the distinctive bannister rail stock comb that was soon obsoleted with the arrival of the Napoleonic wars. We believe that the barrel was and Sikh replacement as this gun was recovered in the kingdom of Nepal in 2003, and all parts are British with exception of the barrel.

A very nice example ready to display!
