    ~ Early 19th Century Indian fortress Matchlock Musket ~


    On its left side and nearby the muzzle the barrel bears two Indian stamps.

    The barrel is attached to the wooden body with five bands.

    All its components are present and the matchlock mechanism works as intended by the manufacturer.

    The musket is fitted with both a front and rear sight.

    The rear sight made of wood and is attached to the barrel assembly using a leather band, making it easier to adjust if needed.

    The reverse of the wooden frame is fitted with a metal ring in order to allow the defenders to fix the musket on a metal spike or a mobile wall mount.

    The pan and the serpent (hammer) are made of steel.

    A wire safety catch can be seen on the right side of the body, an ingenious design element which is uncommon with these weapons. Usually the ignition wire was attached to the user's hand.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The overall length of the musket is 64 inches (163 cm).

    The barrel length is 42 inches (107 cm) and the bore diameter is 2 cm.

    It weighs 10 kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The stock is drying out and has quite a few cracks and some loss around the front, as expected for its age.

    There is some amount of surface rust inside the barrel but its overall condition is good.

    Most of the metal surfaces are clean and rust free.

    ~ Postage ~

    Postage is £35 or it can be picked up from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
