History

    Originally designated the Land Service Musket of the King’s Pattern this weapon, which began production in 1730, is today referred to as the Long Land or 1st Model Brown Bess.


    It was the standard arm of the British Forces fighting in the Americas during the French & Indian War. In the American Revolution, the 1st Models saw widespread used with British Regulars, Loyalists, and Patriot troops particularly in the conflict’s early years.


    Initially produced with iron hardware and a wooden ramrod, Dublin Castle Bess Muskets were often upgraded with steel ramrods which were less prone to breakage.
