Model 1795 Flintlock Musket Type I, Springfield Armory Charleville Pattern Buttplate tang dated 1799 Fine Condition, BEST Eagle Stamp extant; by Silversmith Thomas Sargent (1) - SOLD

Model 1795 Flintlock Musket Type I, Springfield Armory Charleville Pattern Buttplate tang dated 1799, right facing
Some earlier muskets including this example were restocked by the factory and feature the low-comb configuration as displayed herewith.(2) The 1795 is perhaps the most elusive model, this being a pristine example displaying a smooth and uniform plumb-brown barrel congruent with color of all other metal parts except lock and associated nomenclature which display a beautiful, smooth mottled dark smoky gray. A full page is devoted to this very gun’s lock-marks including eagle…simply magnificent. The stock remains in outstanding original condition and features a historic surface and robust patina. Mechanics are fine, tight and smooth. (Overall length: 59.5”, barrel length: 44.5”)
