Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a very cool looking early United States weapon that is 200 years old this year. This is the 69 caliber smoothbore flintlock musket that is officially known as the US model 1808 contract flintlock. In 1808 Congress authorized 19 gunmakers to produce a total of 82,500 muskets. Approximately half of these were eventually produced and delivered. This one is one of the ones that were made for a state contract. In front of the hammer it has the "S. CT" which stands for the state of Connecticut. In Flayderman's guide he states that these were made by the firm of Pomeroy in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. They made these for Connecticut as well as New York and Massachusetts. This gun is in the original flintlock configuration and the mechanics work superbly. The barrel of the gun is still full-length at 40-1/2 inches and you can still see the inspector proof marks at the breech of the gun. The stock is a deep rich dark tone Walnut wood that displays quite well. It still has an original ramrod in the channel underneath the barrel. Both of the sling swivels are still fully functional under the gun as well. This is a gorgeous original early flintlock with more character than a Mark Twain novel.
