This is an early American restocked Irish Dublin Castle produced Brown Bess Musket by Collin. All of the original components, except the wrist escutcheon and nosecap, were remounted by an American gunsmith. The barrel was shortened from 46" to 44-7/8" when it was restocked and there is a crude, modern replacement of the last 8" of the forend. Unmarked round barrel with front bayonet lug on top and deep groove at breech, into tang for rear sight. The rounded lockplate is engraved with a large crown over "GR" in the center and "COLLIN/1764" at the tail. Below the bolster, there is a stamped crown over a broad arrow, the King's ownership proof. The lock was converted to percussion in the American style during its period of use. The brass is standard First Model cast furniture, including buttplate with long tang and serpentine sideplate with a rounded face. Triggerguard bow is engraved with large "R". American walnut stock of full length, devoid of decorative carving, complete with period iron ramrod. The musket is in good condition, other than the repair at the forend, it is in "as found" condition, with dry surfaces. Shows scattered marks from use and dark patina overall. Stock has some scattered marks from use and minor losses. A very nice American stocked Revolutionary War period musket.
