Charleville Heavy Infantry Musket, Model 1777, Corrige Model 1777/Year IX
Model 1777 corrected in the year IX, or 1800 / French Revolutionary Calendar
Date/Period: 1800


Charleville Heavy Infantry Musket, Model 1777, Corrige Model 1777/Year IX Model 1777 corrected in the year IX, or 1800 / French Revolutionary Calendar, right facing

Measurement: Overall length: 60"; barrel length: 44.5" bayonet length: 21"; .74-caliber

Material: Walnut stock, brass forward slanted pan, else steel furniture

Condition: Action is tight and smooth, overall excellent condition; metal parts in
pleasing spotted gray patina

Model Modifications: This Year IX musket is very similar to the Model 1777 and is
separated by a few minor details. The front barrel band previously secured by the easily
and frequently lost screw was replaced by the band held in place by a retaining spring.
Another difference is the frizzen…on the Corrige An IX guns there is no curl at the top of
frizzen face. The regulation length of barrel was set at just over 44.5-inches. The
buttstock has a recessed cheek piece on the left…otherwise all else the same as the
Model 1777.

Standard Information: The musket has a round, smoothbore barrel with faceted
breech section. The flat lockplate is marked in the center "Manufre. Royle / de
Charleville".
It has a rounded tail section, reinforced cock, and a brass pan tilted forward
allowing soldiers in the rear ranks to reload without the need of holding the gun
horizontally to prime the pan. The soldier could prime his pan without interfering with the
soldier in front of him. The furniture is standard for this model, with all but the pan being
steel, the rear trigger guard tang features finger grooves. Most components are
stamped with a small inspector's cartouches. The full length, plain walnut stock has two
circular cartouches, stamped on the right side of the butt, one which is more visible has
a large "SF" in the center. Also, “No. 45” and a “crown”. A row of impressed stars within
the stock [heel to toe] conforms to the buttplate. The barrel tang is inscribed “M 1777”;
at left side of barrel at breech is stamped “1810”. The musket appears to retain its
original iron ramrod.

recommend French Military Small Arms 1717-1865 / Volume I Flintlock Longarms by
