Offered as a used gun, this Japanese manufactured Brown Bess musket is stocked in cherry. The armoury bright barrel has aged to a silvery gray patina. The cherry stock has scattered handling marks and does have some visible wood shrinkage on the buttplate, and thumbpiece. The musket buttstock has been marked with a U.States surcharge as found on some muskets. Trigger reach is 14" to fit today's average size shooter. Weight is 9 pounds.

The .75 caliber bore is bright and has been well maintained. The barrel exterior has a few small scattered speckles which is very typical on a bright finished barrel. The barrel has no rear sight, so this big smoothbore musket qualifies for use in the NMLRA's new N. W. Trade Gun match, where round balls are fired at paper targets, and shot is fired at clay birds thrown from a trap. We recommend using a .715" ball with .017" patch, or a .735" ball in a paper cartridge, using the cartridge paper as a wad, with no patch.

Stocked in cherry, this Brown Bess musket is correctly trimmed in brass furniture. The polished brass has aged to a mellow patina from use and handling. As the musket has aged the buttplate and thumbpiece now stand proud of the stock A brass thumbpiece decorates the wrist, just behind the tang. Originals were often engraved with the name and number of the regiment and company on the thumbpiece and buttplate. This bottom view shows the wide butt with rounded toe, and classic British triggerguard. This model uses a military style steel ramrod, an advanced feature that became popular during the 1750 - 1760 era. Notice the British style two screw sideplate. This second model has a flat sideplate. Earlier versions had a convex sideplate.

This well sparking lock is marked TOWER, and bear's the King's crown mark, over a GR (Georgus Rex, i.e. George our King) indicating ownership by the King. Order a dozen of our best Tom Fuller English gun flints, 9/8" size, our #FLINT-ENG-9 to fit this musket. A conventional vent is drilled at the breech end, exactly like the original. When this vent becomes worn and oversize, we strongly recommend fitting Jim Chambers' best White Lightnin' vent liner. Original musket vents were lined when worn, and this correct original London style vent liner dramatically speeds ignition, at low cost.

This musket will serve you well for your reenactor impression. Used, the stock shows a very few small handling marks, from normal handling and overall the musket has an attractive patina. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted. Else if it does not fit you, return it in unfired condition for same-day refund. Postage is your only risk, when you order any one-of-a-kind gun from Track, whether new, used, or antique.
