~ C1770 Vietnamese Matchlock Musket ~
Here we have an inedible rare piece, a matchlock musket from Vietnam, these muskets are hard to find and always interesting to handle.
These matchlocks all follow the Portuguese design without a shoulder stock (these would be used at close range with relatively low powder charges) and were using matchlocks until well after they were considered obsolete in many nations.
This matchlock is of exquisite quality with care and attention paid to make it a one of a kind piece.
