    ~ First India Pattern Brown Bess Flintlock Musket And Bayonet ~


    This is a very fine example of a First Indian Pattern Brown Bess which is fitted with a rear sight as well (probably a marksmen musket).

    The markings on its lock plate are not visible any more bar a few traces.

    The barrel is stamped near the hammer with three British proof marks. Only the later Victorian mark is clearly visible. Further down, after the rear sight, the barrel is stamped ‘JPR/EXR/264’.

    The butt bears an Indian arsenal stamp.

    It half cocks, cocks and releases with a strong spring.

    The bayonet is stamped on one side with an Indian mark.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The barrel length is 39 inches (99 cm) and the overall length of the musket is 55 inches (139.5 cm).

    The bayonet length is 21 ½ inches (54.5 cm).

    The set weighs 4.35 Kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The metalwork is in good order for the age.

    The woodwork is good with some chips and usage.

    The top wooden side of the stock, above the last brass ring of the rod, has cracked at one point in time.

    Another small piece of the wooden butt has been replaced when the rifle entered in the Indian service. This is quite clear as the arsenal stamp covers a corner of the repaired section, making it a period repair, not a modern one. There is also a scarfed repair on the left side towards the muzzle.

    The bayonet is rusty.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £25 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
