  1. AN244 British 1812 Indian Allies pistol converted to percussion

    British 1812 Indian Allies pistol converted to percussion
    During the War of 1812 the British military supplied their Indian Allies with arms including this pistol which was usually given to Indian Chiefs and frequently handed down through family members after the war. This example was originally flintlock but has been converted to percussion as was popular at the time and much easier to load and fire. British proof marked barrel, broad arrow marked on the lock and totally correct. Maker is Loundes, a less common maker. Does not cock, missing ramrod.

  6. AN299 Brown Bess Short Land converted to fowling piece

    Brown Bess Short Land converted to fowling piece
    This is a pioneer item, re purposed from military service, well used and very interesting. It began life as a Short Land Pattern musket and was converted to a privately owned fowling piece. The barrel at present is cut down to 39 inches in length from the Short Land 42 inches, thereby eliminating the first ramrod pipe and front brass stock protector. A front sight has been added and the stock nicely reconfigured to improve ramrod accessibility. Musket barrels are very thin at the muzzle so this may have been shortened because of damage. The pins that hold the barrel into the stock have been replaced by square headed nails made by a blacksmith. The lock is a 1777 pattern, introduced during the American Revolution due to a shortage of musket locks. This specimen shows numerous pieces of brass screwed to the stock to repair a major break at the wrist. The brass has clearly been recycled as evidenced by stamping on one of the pieces. Short Land muskets were in service from 1740 to 1793. Very interesting item.
