Original British EIC Percussion Musket Bore Fusil Type 1 (1840-1841)
Original Item: Only One Available. Found in the cache of antique weapons imported from the Kingdom of Nepal is this English made and proofed East India Company Percussion Fusil of Musket Bore with old series sidelock 1840-41 (Type 1).
There are four variants of the EIC percussion musket bore fusil, which all had a 33" barrel. These fusils were used by sergeants, artillery and also issued to some entire units of light infantry.
This example, offered in cleaned and complete condition, is either the first variant (Type 1 1840-41) due to its style of trigger guard, lack of a hanoverian bayonet catch, old series sidelock and other characteristics. It features a British proofed barrel and lock marked with the EIC Lion.
This model fusil is excellently described in David Harding’s stellar work "Smallarms of the East India Company 1600-1856" volume 2 page 158-159.
This example is offered in wonderful condition, is a very rare example of a true EIC Fusil in musket bore.
