Georgian / Victorian Era Indian / Afghan North West Frontier 22 Bore Flintlock Jezail Musket With Brown Bess East India Company Lock, Wood Stock Ornately Decorated With Mother Of Pearl & Brass. Sn 15360 - 15360
The Jezail was a simple, cost-efficient and often handmade muzzle-loading long arm commonly used in British India, Central Asia and parts of the Middle East. Jezails were generally handmade weapons, and consequently they widely varied in their construction. Jezails were seen as very personal weapons, and unlike the typical military weapons of the time which were very plain and utilitarian, Jezails tended to be well crafted and were usually intricately decorated. Jezails tended to have very long barrels. The firing mechanism was typically either a matchlock or a flintlock. Since flintlock mechanisms were complex and difficult to manufacture, many Jezails used the lock mechanism from captured or broken Brown Bess muskets. The stocks were handmade and ornately decorated, featuring a distinctive curve which is not seen in the stocks of other muskets. The function of this curve is debated; it may be purely decorative, or it may have allowed the Jezail to be tucked under the arm and cradled tightly against the body, as opposed to being held to the shoulder like a typical musket or rifle. During the Anglo Afghan Wars the Jezail was the primary ranged weapon of Afghan warriors and was used with great effect against British troops. This is a good Indian flintlock Jezail. It has a 38” long steel barrel with flared muzzle and brass barrel bands. The weapon has fixed front and rear sights. The smooth bore has staining and residue consistent with age and use. It measures 53” overall length. The action is from a Brown Bess musket and is marked with partially visible East India Company Rampant Lion mark. Its wood stock is intricately hand inlaid with pieces of Mother of Pearl and brass. It has the typical Jezail curved butt. The wood and metal have the wear and patina to be expected of a native Indian weapon of its age. As is common with these old native weapons the action does not function. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique flintlock weapon no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 15360
