    This is a Short Land Pattern 'Dublin Castle' 2nd Type Brown Bess musket.... for only £2000. Why... well I'm an honest soul and as such please read on ............. At some stage in it's service life the barrel was reduced in size and has since been reinstated to 42". This as you collectors will know halves the value of this wonderful old musket. However, it's been very well done and I didn't actually realise till I looked down the barrel and there are two very very small clues. Also the woodwork has been extended to compensate. But what have we actually got, the musket is in a condition that shows it's age and probably extensive use in all those troubled days in Ireland. Made to the 2nd pattern without the wrist escutcheon it was made/assembled in Dublin Castle in the last years of the 18th century. The butt has a wonderful strip effect and is in very good condition. The lock shows it's age but works with clear engraving. The tang of the butt is beautifully engraved 'S.T.' which I am told indicates a South Tipperary garrison musket and the trigger guard is engraved 'E 20', E being for the 2nd Captains company, musket No. 20. This is a historic weapon used during the dark days of the late 18th and into the 19th century. The barrel was probably shortened for police or prison use after it's miltary life. The breech has a Crown proof stamp. This must sell in the next three months so feel free to phone and make a sensible offer. The musket has been displayed in my house for the last 20 years (see photos) and now it's my other musket's turn, there's no point having three with one in the loft. t is a supurb display piece at under half the price of a untouched 42"er. Wall mounting brackets can be made at a small additional cost. Any questions call me, Simon.
