****************THIS IS A REPRODUCTION******************
NOTE: This is classified as an ANTIQUE FIREARM by the US Government and; therefore, can be shipped to anyone of legal age in the US. THAT BEING SAID, I WOULD LIKE TO DO BUSINESS WITH SOMEONE FROM THE NY TRI STATE AREA, IN ORDER TO AVOID ANY POTENTIAL SHIPPING HEADACHES (It's my 1st firearm shipment and I'm expecting some headaches) IF NOT I WILL DEAL WITH SHIPPING.
The Brown Bess was the musket used by the English troops during the Empire extension and consolidation in India and America. Veteran of the Seven Years War, it was used also by Wellington during the war in the Iberian Peninsula and at Waterloo. The infantry troops of almost the entire world used it, from the European Nations allied with the English to the Mexican troops, who used it until the last battle with United States on the 13th of September 1847 at Chapultepec.
Our reproduction has a lock with the signature of the gunsmith William Grice and the date 1762, the crown and the alphabetical letters GR (Georgius Rex). The smooth bore barrel is made of steel, satin finish, the walnut stock is oil finish.
Used but not abused. Shows some dings from use while I was a re-enactor with the Brigade of the American Revolution in the mid 90's. One thing to point out is a crack in the stock that starts at the brass ferrule and traveled up toward the trigger guard. I filled the crack with wood glue over 10 years ago and never had a problem. I purchased this as a kit from Navy Arms (then in New Jersey) in 1994.
