Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available- as used in the American Revolution and Napoleonic war. Once as numerous as Brown Bess Muskets the French M1777 equivalent was referred to as the CHARLEVILLE Musket. However. Charleville was only one of the manufacturing Arsenals, the predominant one being St. Etienne.

This example has all steel mounts, brass mounts were generally only used for Naval issue, the lock is marked "Manufact. a St.Etienne", the barrel tang marked M-1777. Differing from the Brown Bess not only using all steel mounts the barrel is secured by three-barrel bands and not pins. Used overall condition this musket comes with a latter all steel button nosed ramrod.

The middle barrel spring is missing.

Hard to find with clear lock markings as most were cleaned off and sanitized before disposal into the civilian market when released from military stores makes this a fine example.
