Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Potsdam -- Prussian Model 1809 Musket 72 Cal.

Very nice brass mounted 3 band Prussian Model 1809 "Potsdam" musket. Lock works excellent, marked Neisse, dated 1831 holds at half and full cock. 41 1/2 inch Barrel marked FW with crown and 1831, nipple needs replaced as it's broken clear off at the top-probably an easy out would do it. Bore is very good with old style straight lands and grooves no twist "rifling". This hugh 71-72 Caliber bore should be an interesting round ball thrower. Nice inspection "FW" marks and crowns on metal parts and wood. One small stress open grain crack for about 1 1/2 inches long at the rear point of the lock plate. Other than that, wood is in very good sound condition. Total length is 55 1/2 inches. The ramrod is not correct being some kind of odd home made thing and the front sling swivel is missing. Some of the brass mounted pieces have been gold painted indicative of what the GAR used to do for display weapons. The U.S. Ordnance Department purchased approximately 165,000 Prussian arms. 100,300 weapons are identified as smooth-bores. These were received from eight different suppliers at prices varying between four and eight dollars each. All the shipments arrived in late 1861 through early 1862 when the need for arms was most urgent. The U.S. Ordnance Department classed them as third class weapons. By the fourth quarter of 1862 they were being replaced with better arms. According to FIREARMS FROM EUROPE - SECOND EDITION there are no known Confederate purchases, although their acquisition through battlefield capture is most likely. Very nice display piece!
