Original Napoleonic Era Scandinavian Doglock Musket

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a most interesting Scandinavian musket using the Doglock system essentially as a safety.

Dating from the Napoleonic wars when Denmark and basically the rest of Scandinavia chose to fight against Britain on the side of Napoleon Bonaparte.

Twice England sent fleets to Copenhagen, in 1791 and again in 1807, decimating the Danish fleet and its allies. The 1801 engagement was when Admiral Lord Nelson, then only second in command, chose to ignore his Commander-in-Chief's "Flag Order" to withdraw by putting his telescope to his blind eye (shot away) saying "I see no signal".

He then exercised a brilliant attack totally routing the enemy. This very rare Doglock musket dates right from this period.

Features of note include a 41-inch barrel, all brass bands, butt plate and "L" shaped side plate which appears to bear arsenal markings giving this 57-inch long Musket a character all of it’s own.
