Details

The "Brown Bess" was one of the most renowned flintlock muskets ever produced. Introduced during the reign of Queen Anne (1702-1714), the gun was produced for over a century and was one of the most significant firearms of the American Revolutionary War. The Continental Army was armed with the weapon at the start of hostilities and, as the war progressed, many more were manufactured locally. The musket was still in British service at the time of the Napoleonic Wars in Europe (1799-1815). It weighed a hefty fifteen pounds with its bayonet and fired a ball three quarters of an inch in diameter! This non-firing version is accurately detailed and comes complete with its removable bayonet.

    Nice replica - good price
    Review by Keith
    This replica arrived speedily. It is a lovely replica and a comparable weight which means it is very good for use as an example of the musket of the period as a teaching aid

    Review by MikeB
    The Brown Bess arrived nicely packaged in a long cardboard box. Was impressed by the weight and general quality of the musket.

    The trigger mechanism is excellent, although obviously the cock and flint are all one part. The flash cover works though, and is pushed out when fired.
    The ramrod is also cast as part of the metal underside of the barrel, so can't be removed. The stock is beautiful too, and doesn't look too perfect to be machine made.
    The bayonet has no sharp edges, but is still a metal pointy thing so could do some harm.

    In all a wonderfully made replica that would look the part as a display piece or in reenactments.

    A good display piece
    Review by Otto
    Not as heavy as the real thing, of course, and it doesn't bear close inspection but for hanging on the wall (or in my case on one of the old oak beams in my cottage) it looks the part.
