Patterned after French Charleville muskets imported during the Revolution, the Model 1795 was the first musket produced by the Springfield Armory. This early example bears a 1799 date on the butt plate, indicating the first year of dated production, with earlier examples undated. Fitted with a 44-1/2" .69 caliber smoothbore barrel with "P / (Eagle Head) / V" proofs. Barrel is retained by 3 iron bands to a full length walnut stock. The initials "IN" are stamped near the trigger guard and an "A" on the left of the butt. Original flintlock configuration with early style ornamental cock retained by correct convex head screw. Faceted horizontal pan and curled toe frizzen. Left of the cock on the lock plate, "SPRINGFIELD" is stamped in a vertical arch, with the distinctive drooped wing federal eagle and script "US" markings to the right. Included is original style ram rod. CONDITION: Overall good. Metal components taking on a brown patina, with barrel brighter. Some light pitting, especially at the pan, and one larger pit on the barrel. Stock shows expected handling marks, with a few hairline cracks in forestock and one 3 - 1/2" spit in the butt stock. Some chipping at tail of lock and a small split running parallel, possibly from spring kick. Lock appears to function correctly. BAS
