Original Item: Early Model indicates that the butt stock has been inleted to accommodate a patch box, like the P-1837 Brunswick. Unfortunately, most of the brass patch box covers were removed long ago so we will include a brass reproduction patch box cover if the original is missing.
Found in Nepal these are original smooth bore full stocked Officer’s Muskets that have the outward appearance of being Brunswick Rifles (P-1841). Introduced for use by Junior Officers (NCOs) who led Companies of Smoothbore Musketeers armed with either the smoothbore Flintlock 3rd Model Brown Bess or P-1842 Percussion smoothbore Musket. -Initially these NCOs were issued with Rifled Brunswicks, however, the poor quality of the black powder of the period created so much fouling in the rifled barrels that the Officer’s rate of fire suffered drastically. The result was that the attending Company of Musketeers reduced their rate of fire to match the slow pace of the Officer’s rifled weapon. To solve this problem in 1841 NCOs were issued Smoothbore Brunswicks that allowed the Officer the status & prestige of carrying what appeared to be a rifled weapon but that was able to match the rate of fire of other smoothbore muskets. Each Musket comes with its issue steel or brass hilted Sword Bayonet.
These 160+ year-old Musket and Sword Bayonet are TOTALLY untouched and offered…
