Originally made in France, at the Tulle arsenal, or at Saint Etienne, the French trade gun known as the fusil-de-chasse was a light weight gun-for-the-hunt. The stock architecture and iron trim resemble those of the heavier French military muskets, but are lighter and slender. Stocked in black walnut, correctly oil finished, this fullstock has a dark brown tone. The lock, barrel, and iron furniture are browned with the buttplate aging to a silvery gray patina. Weighing in at 7.5 pounds the fusil has a trigger reach of 13-3/4" making it well suited for today's average size shooter.

The 24 gauge octagon-to-round barrel is 41-1/2" in length. The octagon section is 8-1/2" in length transitioning to 16 flats with a wedding band. The .578" diameter bore is bright and clean, well maintained. A small silver fusil front sight is soldered on the barrel 1-1/2" from the muzzle. No rear sight is fitted to the barrel. This smoothbore 24 gauge gun will qualify for the new N.M.L.R.A. Trade Gun Match, where you fire patched round balls at paper targets, and shot at clay birds, using the same flint smoothbore gun.

The sweeping architecture of the French fusil buttstock is quite comfortable to shoot. The wide flat buttplate is an advantage, since it reduces the recoil you will feel when firing full loads. Stocked in American black walnut the wood is in very good condition with the dark tone giving this smoothbore a well aged appearance. The barrel, lock, and iron furniture have a smooth brown finish, with some patina finish on the crisp edges as well as on the buttplate. No signature or other marks can be found on the barrel or anywhere else on the gun, the strong preference of many re-enactors. The short straight tang is finished flush with the stock

The iron triggerguard is mounted with two screws on the grip rail. The width of the early buttplate is shown, revealing how the baluster wrist tapers from the lock panels, widest at the buttplate. The buttstock has a very subtle “La Peid" style architecture. French for “cows foot" it refers not only to the profile of the stock but also to the way the buttstock swells outward and then back in before reaching the buttplate. Three browned iron ramrod pipes retain the wooden ramrod. The wooden ramrod is finished with a jagged brass ramrod tip that is threaded 8-32 for your loading and cleaning attachments. The iron sideplate is inlet into the walnut stock, it does have a few small inletting gaps near the central oval. This simple military sideplate is the classic French design, used on their fusil-de-chasse, and French Marine fusils, made at Tulle, St. Etienne, Charleville, and Mauberg.

The unmarked French fusil flint lock is finished to match the barrel. The frizzen face has typical marks from use and the area around the vent show some scars from a flint striking the edge of the barrel. We recommend that you order a dozen of our best 7/8" English gun flints, #FLINT-ENG-7, to fit this medium size flint lock.Cocking the lock requires real effort, since the strong mainspring is tensioned to produce best sparks, and fast lock time. Trigger release is smooth, due to the high leverage, and trigger geometry.The stainless steel vent liner is positioned well above the bottom of the pan, centered on the heat of the flash. If your flint longrifle suffers from that infamous slow whoosh-bang ignition delay, study the work of today's best gun makers, and position your vent well centered on the pan, high above the bottom, to serve as a window on the center of the flash.

In excellent overall condition this French fusil has a few marks from use that give it a light patina. This lovely fusil, would make a fine addition to anyone's collection or 18th century impression.
