Of the Committee of Safety style, Probably New England. The musket features a round unmarked smoothbore barrel of American manufacture with bayonet lug mounted on top. The rounded lockplate is stamped "BARNETT" in the center and has a double line border. The cock has a period repair and has been reinforced. The brass furniture includes an oval wrist escutcheon with a screw through the center, a British style Short Land Pattern serpentine sideplate, a cast buttplate with three stage tang and a cast trigger guard with no front tang. The front tang was probably broken when it was on a British musket and was filed off and recycled on this musket. The musket has three American ramrod ferrules of brass and a sheet brass band at the tip of the forend. The musket is stocked in plain walnut and has a New England style shell design carved in relief around the barrel tang and relief moldings along the ramrod channel. Complete with wooden ramrod which is probably a period replacement. CONDITION: Very good, overall. Barrel retains a brown patina, lock retains a matching patina and functions well, is in original flintlock configuration. Brass furniture has some marks from use and has been polished, now mellowing to a soft mustard patina. Stock shows some chipping around lockplate and some filler on left side of forward most ramrod ferrule. A very nice and honest example of a Revolutionary War period American assembled musket. DMG
