The United States Navy was re-established in 1797, the Constitution, the United States,
and the Constellation were commissioned; the first government orders for a specific
“ships musket” were recorded as ordered by the Secretary of War as armament for the
Navy. This example with rare bayonet remains in outstanding original condition, the
stock is superb and displays a great patina; all metal parts including barrel are a smooth
plumb-brown; action is smooth and tight. This model is a variant of the 1795 Infantry
Musket featuring the same mountings; barrel is two-inches shorter than Infantry Musket.
Discussions are found within American Military Shoulder Arms, Volume II by George
Moller, also U.S. Military Flintlock Muskets Volume II by Peter Schmidt. See: Borders
Away, Volume II: Firearms of the Age of Fighting Sail by William Gilkerson…and of
course, Flayderman’s Guide, 9th edition, page 540. (Overall L: 57.5”, barrel L: 42.25”)
