Perfect for early war Confederates and militias! For sale is my War of 1812 and Napoleonic Era British Brown Bess .75 musket. This was made by Middlesex Village initially. I bought it, and recontoured the stock and reshaped it to match an original and added Rifle Shoppe parts to better represent this musket; the forestock is graceful and sleek and the comb of the butt is now more correct.The stock looks black in these pics but is a very dark brown with red highlights- my flash gives it a darker hue, it looks much nicer in person.
The dbl-throated cocking piece is unique of post 1800 Brown Bess muskets and it sparks excellently- the interior of the lock has been fully tuned for fast ignition. The barrel is properly surcharged and has all government markings & inspection marks all over the musket.
The stock has been darkened to match a European walnut and then hand-rubbed with coats of oil to get a military sheen on it.
Musket comes with a British military sling, flashguard, hammerstall AND fitted bayonet which also has the British gov't surcharge.
You won't find a better researched and re-created India Pattern Bess around. This is amazingly light at only around 8lbs and a large .75 caliber. Smoothbore-naturally. Asking $580 plus shipping. Email inquiries to Jim Chocole at Anteekguy97@aol.com
