C1800 Moroccan/ Middle East/ Afghan North West Frontier 36 Bore Flintlock Jezail Musket With Georgian Tower Brown Bess Lock, Octagonal Barrel & ‘Club Foot’ Wood Stock With Thick Polished Horn Butt Cap & Steel Ram Rod. Sn 14945 - 14945
The Jezail was a simple, cost-efficient and often handmade muzzle-loading long arm commonly used in British India, Central Asia, parts of the Middle East and Morocco / North Africa. 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 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 some 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 very good quality flintlock Jezail. It has a 49 ¾” long octagonal steel barrel with blade fore sight & 7 ornate hand tooled copper barrel bands. The muzzle diameter is 13.4mm approx. 36 bore. The smooth bore has staining and residue consistent with age and use. It measures a massive 5’3” overall length. The action is from a British Georgian Brown Bess musket and is marked Tower Crown GR (George Rex) & with small inspection mark. The Brown Bess Swan neck hammer is fitted with flint. Its wood stock has knocks bumps and bruises consistent with age and use. The metal has silver a gold coloured decoration on cartouches with script characters on top of the breech and ‘v’ notch block rear sight. It has the typical Jezail curved club foot butt with thick polished horn end cap which has naïve hand tooled decoration. The wood and metal have the wear and patina to be expected of a native weapon of its age. It has its original steel ram rod. The Jezail cocks and dry fires. 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 14945
