Original Prussian Model 1809 Percussion Conversion Musket Marked NEISSE 1835
Original Item: Only One Available. Original Prussian .75" (17mm) smoothbore musket marked with a Crown over NEISSE 1835 on the lock plate and again on the barrel. The brass butt plate is regimentally marked 23 .L.W.R.
The 42" barrel with signs of powder burn at the breach is in solid and presentable condition being fully polished as the day it was originally issued. Many of these Prussian muskets were imported just prior to the U.S. Civil War and re-issued, mostly to the Confederacy.
A fine and most appealing example.

IMA considers all of our antique guns as non-firing, inoperable and/or inert. Title 18, U.S. Code, Section 921(a)(16) defines antique firearms as all guns made prior to 1899. This law exempts antique firearms from any form of gun control or special engineering because they are not legally considered firearms. No FFL, C&R or any license is required to possess, transport, sell or trade Antique guns. All rifles and muskets sold by IMA that were manufactured prior to 1899 are considered Antiques by the US BATF (United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms). Therefore, all of IMA's Antique guns may be shipped to all US States and most nations around the world.
These antique guns are not sold in "live" condition. They are sold as collector's items or as "wall hangers". Any attempt at restoring an antique gun to be operational is strongly discouraged and is done so at the risk of the customer. By purchasing an antique gun from IMA you thereby release IMA, its employees and corporate officers from any and all liability associated with use of our Antique guns.
Pre-1899 Manufacture, no licenses required, allowed to ship to almost any deliverable address across the globe. Please note that for international shipping, these MUST be shipped using UPS WW Services.
