For a similar example, see page 21 of "French Military Small Arms" by Didier Bianchi. Tapered round barrel with faceted breech section. There is a bayonet lug mounted on top, near the muzzle. The barrel is retained by two French Model 1766 barrel bands, the rearmost band is absent. The flat lockplate is stamped with a crown over "SE" for St. Etienne. The buttplate and triggerguard are from a French Model 1717 Infantry musket. French Model 1728 Iron sideplate and ring mounted behind it. The full length walnut stock of traditional French form, but the absence of any barrel band springs suggests a period American restock. Complete with a later iron ramrod. CONDITION: Barrel shows some wear and heavy brown patina overall, some resurfacing was done around touch hole and at breech. Lock retains a dark surface and markings show some wear. Lock appears to be in its original flintlock configuration. All furniture retains a dark patina. Stock has a later coat of finish and shows scattered marks from use, minor chips, and age cracks throughout. A small sliver is replaced along sideplate and some pieces replaced around lock. A very attractive French/American musket.
