Infantry Model 1777 Corrigan IX, Corrected in Revolutionary Year IX Unmarked Due to Chaos and Lack of Experienced Workers As Armories Were Rebuilt Post Revolution…a clean example in fine overall condition

Infantry Model 1777 Corrigan IX, Corrected in Revolutionary Year IX, right facing

IX modifications include (not limited to) two-ring polished iron front barrel band attached by retaining spring (rather than screw); brazed semicircular front sight at rearmost ring. There is no curl at top of frizzen on IX guns…it is uniformly curved; the head of the IX top jaw screw is more ovoid as compared to the older round head. The 40.5-inch barrel is round with five short flats at the breech. The top of breech plug tang is consistently not marked. The curly walnut stock featuring recessed cheek piece and massive buttplate is otherwise about-identical to that of the Model 1777. Spring for loading rod is no longer within front barrel band; now in the ramrod channel inside forestock; retaining pin is found between the front of lock and rear barrel band. Brass pan is slanted, trigger guard has finger ridges improving grip for bayonet combat, otherwise the IX Model is identical to the Model 1777. The stock having overall length of 55-inches is fine with crisp edges; all metal in bright finish. There are scattered inspector initials. Please call for additional information and/or enthusiastic discussion. See French Military Small Arms, Volume I, Flintlock Longarms by Didier Bianchi, Chapter 7.
