    ~ A 1715 Queen Ann Period Sea Service Brown Bess Musket ~


    The firearm was made 1715 by Vaughan, one of the first Tower of London contractors.

    It has been converted from a dog lock musket and is fitted with early brass regimental mounts with an early produced frizzen.

    The lockplate is stamped with the "GR" Royal cypher stamp and a stamp for the "Vaughan" company followed by "15".

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The barrel has a length of 42 inches (106.75cm) with the musket having an overall length of 58 inches (147.25cm). It weighs 4.5kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The musket half cocks, cocks and releases with a very strong spring. The barrel retains a decent thickness at the muzzle. The stock has suffered from worm in the past. It is chipped behind the lockplate.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £22 or the musket can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard....Read full description
