This large musket was assembled by contemporary builder Dr. Gary White. The musket is assembled with a Dutch influence and is signed Van Sandt on the top flat of the barrel. The Dutch had a strong influence in early Colonial American. Some of the early longarms were still in use long after the later flintlocks were in common usage. With a weight of 10.8 pounds and trigger reach of 14-1/4" it should neatly fit a larger or taller shooter well.

The octagon-to-round barrel is 75" caliber smoothbore. The octagon breech tapers for 14" with a sixteen flat transition to round with a single wedding band. The barrel is finished to a dark matte brown. A tall brass blade front sight is soldered behind the muzzle. The bore is bright and has been well maintained.

Stocked in European walnut the buttstock has a very distinctive Dutch influence and is shaped with long paneled flats on the comb, butt, and toe. A flat sheet iron buttplate is fitted to protect the end grain of the stock. The stock does not feature any decorative carving, typical of early longguns. The early style triggerguard has a large single bow, later guards turn in behind the trigger while an extra portion turns to the rear, leaving a small triangular gap between the two, a strengthening feature. The forearm of the stock is shaped with a panel on the bottom. No ramrod entry pipe is fitted, instead three plain steel forward ramrod pipes secure the 3/8" diameter ramrod to the musket. The brass tip is fitted with a cleaning jag. The side panel is fitted with a large brass sideplate that fills the panel and is engraved as a dragon. The sideplate has three lock bolts, which are typical of very early longarms.

This large, 9" long, snaphaunce lock was assembled from castings by The Rifle Shoppe. The lock has a sliding pan cover to protect the priming powder in the flash pan. This has to be operated manually. This early lock has no half cock notch, but instead features a very early safety. The small lever below and left of the cock can be rotated 180 degrees, pointing at the muzzle to allow use. When pointed to the rear it should disengage the sear. We did not find this safety to be reliable, as it will allow the hammer to fall in either position if the trigger is pulled. Managing the frizzen position is the only way to assure the lock will not spark. The lock has two Phillips head screws used in assembly, one externally, one internally.

Appropriate for the mid to later half of the 17th century the gun could well have seen use into the early 18th century if properly maintained. This fowler will make an excellent addition to any black powder collection or 17th century impression.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.
