GR79-0821- 5236, Flint 3rd Model Brown Bess. BUY NOW
GR79-0821- 5236, Flint 3rd Model Brown Bess, typically used in Napoleonic Wars. This flintlock longarm is a British India Pattern infantry long arm known, more commonly referred to as the 3rd Model Brown Bess. This lighter and shorter musket became the preferred musket of manufacture by the Board of Ordnance for the British Army in 1797. Prior to this, this pattern was developed and adopted by the armies of the East India Company, hence the name. Throughout the Napoleonic Wars nearly 3 million of these Brown Bess muskets were manufactured and distributed to Britain’s infantry regiments. The main differences between the previous “Short Land” pattern and the “India” pattern were weight and length (1 pound lighter and 3” shorter). Other changes were aesthetic; no escutcheon (thumb) plate, three ramrod pipes instead of four, and less ornate brass butt plate and trigger guard. The gun appears reconverted to flint from percussion. The lock is heavily worn with only partial visible markings. Unit marking, IR on flat portion of stock. The barrel has scattered shallow spots on the exterior. Good overall.
