Product Description

A very nice example of a very rare French M1777 flintlock carbine (artillery pattern).

It is not a shortened musket and has been made specifically and in exactly the same way, minus the middle band. has the slanted brass pan of the model 1777 and the barrel length is 80 cm. It is clearly marked Manufacture Nationale de St etienne on the lock and the barrel has the St. Etienne markings. The other metal parts have a "C" under a star. The barrel is stamped with RF on the side of the touch hole, although it isn’t easy to see. It is also stamped MLE 1777 on the tang. It has the wood plug in the side of the stock with RF. This mark and the ‘Manufacture Nationale’ attest to it being of the French Revolution period. Before that and it would be ‘Manufacture Royale’. Afterwards, it becomes ‘Manufacture Imperiale’ under Napoleon.

Please note that as an antique black powder flintlock, this gun does not require a licence to own in the UK (other countries’ rules may vary), unless it is intended to be fired.

Size: 117 cm (42 1/8 inches)
