Flintlock Musket

.80 caliber, 46" barrel, no S/N. An unusual, unmarked Revolutionary War period continental flintlock military musket with 46" barrel and brass furniture. The banana lock and goose-neck cock appear to have all the original small parts. The faceted pan indicates a possible French origin to this most interesting musket. The long round barrel is stamped "C1061" (significance unknown). The brass furniture has a Dutch look about it, but could equally well be French. Sideplate is decorative for a military gun. Walnut full stock. Barrel has bayonet lug, clearly indicating military use.


Gun appears to be essentially untouched, allowing for one significant crack on right side of forend just forward of 2nd barrel band. Retains ramrod in identical untouched crusty condition. A most intriguing Revolutionary War period musket worthy of further research.

Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000
