FRENCH MODEL 1822 MUSKET CONVERTED TO PERCUSSION

$950.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: G3694

Offered hear is a French M-1822 Flintlock Musket. The production date 1822 is clearly visible on the barrel breech tang. The lock clearly shows the script maker’s inscription, “Mre Rie de Culle”, forward of the heavy percussion hammer. Two other small touch marks are indistinguishable. The barrel has a small bolster and cone that has been added to the barrel. The .72 caliber bore has been rifled and is clear with moderate pitting. All of the gun metal has a dark gray-brown color with surface pitting. The musket retains its original sling swivels. The rear sight is a notch sight. The original full-length ramrod is in the channel under the barrel, it retains good threads at one end, and the trumpet end was counter bored when the gun was rifled. The lock functions crisply on all positions and is mechanically strong. The original cone (nipple) is in the bolster of the musket. Barrel bands, butt plate, trigger guard, side plate, and ramrod all are in similar good condition.

The stock shows original color and finish. The stock shows a number of bumps, dings, and dents, typical of a 19th century military musket. The right side of the shoulder stock has a 3/8” hole bored in for unknown reason. The is a crack running the width of the stock at the breech/lockplate/side plate area.

This a good representative example of the many interesting European cast-off weapons that crossed the ocean to serve during the American Civil War, and would be a worthy addition to any display of imported arms.  [jet]
