    Large, C1800 Indian Match Lock 16 Bore Musket / Rampart Gun With Octagonal Barrel & Ornate Hand Painted Wood Furniture With Steel Ram Rod . Sn 15787 - 15787

    The matchlock was the first mechanism, or "lock" invented to facilitate the firing of a hand-held firearm. This design removed the need to lower by hand a lit match into the weapon's flash pan and made it possible to have both hands free to keep a firm grip on the weapon at the moment of firing and more importantly, to keep both eyes on the target. This is a C1800 Indian matchlock musket. It has a 122cm long 16 bore octagonal barrel with flared muzzle and measures 171cms overall length. The barrel near the breech is numbered ‘97’. The smooth bore has residue and staining. It has a wood stock which has ornate red and green foliate scrolling decoration on a cream background & hand tooled brass barrel bands. It has a bead fore sight, grooved block rear sight and steel ram rod. It has a metal bar press trigger on the underside of the stock which correctly moves the 'match holder' arm to the metal powder pan (the match holder is absent). The metal has even patina to be expected of a native Indian weapon of its age. The wood work is colourful, clean and undamaged. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique matchlock musket no licence is required to own this item in the UK. Sn 15787
