1740 Brown Bess

 
 



History

    Originally designated the Land Service Musquet 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, 1st Models saw widespread use with British Regulars, Loyalists, and Patriot troops particularly in the conflict’s early years.

    In addition to the wooden rammer and brass hardware typical of the Long Lands, the musket incorporates the 1740 Pattern double bridle lock.


Our Reproduction

    The weapon requires no defarbing, has authentic lock markings, aprons, and brass furniture. Like all of our muskets, it comes with a limited warranty. The musket’s hammer has been adequately hardened and comes with a lifetime re-hardening guarantee. Bayonets are available.
