Original North Indian Heavily Inlaid Flintlock Jezail Musket with Brown Bess Lock dated 1800

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The Jezail (sometimes Jezzail from the Pashto language,Pashto: جزائل) is a simple, cost-efficient and typically handmade muzzle-loading long arm commonly used in the Middle East region in the past. These were all highly personalized, so no two were alike. The styles varied quite a bit based on the region they were from.

This is a classic Northern Indian type example, constructed using a genuine British Brown Bess, Third Model, flintlock mechanism made by BARNETT. There are traces of the EIC "Heart" logo, as well as the date of 1800. This was most likely removed from another gun, and used to make the Jezail. The barrel has some designs near the lock on the top.

It retains its fully bone and brass wire inlaid "hook butt" stock of which a few inlays are now absent. Extensively used by the PUTAN tribesmen on the North West Frontier, near the Khyber pass into what is today Afghanistan. Remember the Movie THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING with Sean Connery and Michael Caine? A favorite of most red blooded American men.

Brass trigger guard and brass barrel bands, very attractive and very nice bearing such an early date at 1800, already 220 years old!

An interesting type that we have not had before! Ready to display!
