1748 1st Mod Bess



    The 1748 Long Land (1st Model) Brown Bess was one of several variations to the Land Service Musquet of the King’s Pattern.

    In addition to the features of earlier models including brass hardware, stock aprons, and double bridle lock, the 1748 Bess was the first to be produced with a metal ramrod (as opposed to other models that were retrofitted with metal rammers) and cast brass nosecap.

    The Long Land Bess 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.


Our Reproduction

    Our reproduction 1748 Long Land (1st Model) Brown Bess is faithful to the original in design and functionality. It features a .75 caliber barrel, brass hardware, and double bridle lock. The metal ramrod and cast brass nosecap distinguishes the musket as a later variation of the long lived Long Land muskets.

    The weapon has proper 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.
