1777 French Musket

 
 



History

    The 1777 French ‘Charleville’ Musket was a significant departure from previous models. It incorporated a new robust nosecap, trumpet style ramrod, ridges on the trigger guard, and a angled brass pan. A recess in the stock’s butt allowed for better aim.

    The 1777 Charleville saw service in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. In America, the weapon saw use with French troops at the end of the American Revolution and afterward on the Frontier. French troops stationed in America prior to the Louisiana purchase were equipped with the weapon as were also some Canadian militia troops. Later US arms were based on the 1777’s design including the 1816 Springfield musket.
