    Indian / Afghan North West Frontier .600” Calibre Flintlock Jezail Rifle With 7 Jezail Rifle With 7 Groove Rifling, Brown Bess George III Enfield Tower Lock & W Single Shot .600" Rifles
    1760-1820 Indian / Afghan North West Frontier .600” Calibre Flintlock Jezail Rifle With 7 Groove Rifling, Brown Bess George III Enfield Tower Lock & Wood Stock Inlaid With Mother Of Pearl & Brass. Sn 13220. - 13220 The jezail was a simple, cost-efficient and often handmade muzzle-loading long arm commonly used in British India, Central Asia and parts of the Middle East. Jezails were generally handmade weapons, and consequently they widely varied in their construction. Jezails were seen as very personal weapons, and unlike the typical military weapons of the time which were very plain and utilitarian, jezails tended to be well crafted and were usually intricately decorated. Jezails tended to have very long barrels. The firing mechanism was typically either a matchlock or a flintlock. Since flintlock mechanisms were complex and difficult to manufacture, many jezails used the lock mechanism from captured or broken Brown Bess muskets. The stocks were handmade and ornately decorated, featuring a distinctive curve which is not seen in the stocks of other muskets. The function of this curve is debated; it may be purely decorative, or it may have allowed the jezail to be tucked under the arm and cradled tightly against the body, as opposed to being held to the shoulder like a typical musket or rifle. During the Anglo Afghan Wars the jezail was the primary ranged weapon of Afghan warriors and was used with great effect against British troops. This is a very good quality Indian flintlock jezail. It has a 40” long .600” calibre octagonal steel barrel which has 7 groove rifling and brass barrel bands. It measures 56” overall length. The action is from a Brown Bess musket and is marked with George III Royal Cypher (1760-1820) and the Enfield Tower mark. It has a wood stock intricately hand inlaid with pieces of Mother of Pearl and brass. It has the typical jezail curved butt, small brass blade fore sight and block with notch rear sight & steel ram rod. The wood and metal have the wear and patina to be expected of a native Indian weapon of its age. Its action works correctly. Price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique flintlock weapon no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 13220 £595.00
