Pedersoli Brown Bess Flintlock Musket Carbine 75 caliber
Between 1756 and 1813 the English “Board of Ordnance” required the production of shorter versions of the regular infantry musket. The barrel’s lengths varied from 26” to 37”, equipping the corps of the dragoons, the grenadiers, the Royal Horse-Guards and the Artillery, as well as some volunteers corps. Our reproduced carbine is inspired by this series and keeps the same features of the Brown Bess, like the walnut stock oil finish and the satin finish of the barrel.
The Brown Bess was used by British troops during colonization of American territories. It also saw action during the War of 1812 and during the Mexican-American War. Like the originals, these smooth- bore .75-cal. flintlocks feature brass hardware, oil-stained walnut stock and steel ramrod, barrel and lock.
