Land Pattern musket "Brown Bess", England 1722

Reproduction of the English "Brown Bess" rifle made of wood and metal and with loading and firing movements.

The gun, officially called Land Pattern Muskett, was one of the most used firearms during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It was a avant-charge carbine, long and heavy, with smooth bore and large caliber. It is notable for its robust construction and reliability of its flintlock mechanism, but also for the scarce range and low velocity of the projectile, in line with similar weapons of that time.

This rifle was the basic weapon of the British infantry during the revolution of the American colonies and in the Napoleonic wars (1799-1815), in which the strategic talent of Napoleon Bonaparte excelled.

Relive the Napoleonic battles of the early 19th century with the DENIX reproduction of this rifle!

Belletre French Marines -a 1750's reenactment group had 14 of these Brown Bess muskets we use for programs and historic demonstrations. The guns are still in fine shape after 10 years of use. They look so real that people are often amazed that we have so many functioning weapons. An ideal choice for any group needing non firing replicas for their members to use.
