Saint Étienne 1777 Corrigé An IX Muzzleloader .69 Rifles

£ 950
FRENCH NAPOLEONIC MODEL 1777 CORRIGÉ AN IX MUSKET

The gun appears to be a modified version, being somewhat shorter than the standard infantry model, at 131cm, and weighing 8lbs 11oz.
It is possible that this was carried by a cavalryman, such as a dragoon. The lock plate is marked to the Imperial factory of Saint- Étienne, the barrel flats are marked '122' and '1813', with the barrel tang marked 'M1777". There are further marks to the barrel bands and the butt plate. The gun is complete with the steel ramrod. The calibre of the barrel is approximately .68". It has both fore and rear sling swivels. The action is firm, in full working order and holds on both the half and full cock, and the powder hole is clear.
The woodwork is all in excellent condition, with only a very few minor knocks and scratches, far less than would be expected for a weapon of this age. Indeed, the whole gun is in very good order, as will be evident from the photos.
Although very large numbers of this iconic gun were manufactured during the Napoleonic Wars, very few are available today.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
