400-guns ordered by Secretary of War in 1797, Navy correspondence notes “100 New Ship Muskets” received in Boston 1798…, right facing

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 in outstanding original condition…the stock is superb and displays
a great patina; all metal parts including barrel are a smooth plumb-brown thinning to
smoky gray; 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.
