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.
