The French Model 1777 Dragoon Musket as “corrected” in Year IX (1802) and produced at the Imperial Manufactory of Mutzig, situated near Klingenthal. The musket is 55-1/2" in overall length, with a 40-3/8" long, smoothbore barrel of 0.69 caliber in its original flintlock configuration; a brass, notched rear sight has been brazed on at the breech and the barrel is devoid of visible markings. The convex lock is 6-1/4" long, with reinforced cock and brass pan, under which is stamped “Mre. Imple. / de Mutzig.” The barrel and lock are affixed to a walnut 3/4 stock with cut-out cheekpiece and brass mountings, consisting of buttplate, trigger guard, side plate (stamped ‘I”), noseband (stamped with a crown/P on left side) and rear band; the middle band is of iron—standard to this pattern, as it the trumpet-headed ramrod and sling swivels, all original. There is a 3/4" x 1" brass plate set in the right face of the butt. CONDITION: The iron parts have a brownish-grey patina, the brass dull, in overall good condition, but lock doesn’t hold at full cock, the wood with light dings and bruises commensurate with age/military usage.
