WAR OF 1812 Antique U.S. SPRINGFIELD ARMORY Model 1795 FLINTLOCK Musket .69
EARLY US Military Musket Dated “1808”
Here we present an antique U.S. Springfield Model 1795 Flintlock Musket, manufactured circa 1808 at Springfield Armory in Massachusetts. The Model 1795 was a smooth bore, flintlock based musket and the first weapon system to be produced within the United States. It was designed very closely patterning the French “Charleville” Flintlock Musket that was used to by the colonists against the British during the American Revolutionary War. Springfield Armory produced 80,000 of these, with Harpers Ferry responsible for another 70,000. Production of this musket ran from 1795 through 1818. She found her way into some important American conflicts of the time. Including the War of 1812 between the United States and the British Empire, the Mexican-American War, and even the Civil War. The 1795 would also be taken along by members of the American expedition led by Lewis and Clark from 1803 to 1806. Use of the 1795 was recorded as late as 1865 for the southern Confederate forces who were still fielding her late in the Civil War.
This one is dated “1808” on both the tail of the lock and butt plate tang. “US” over a federal eagle over “Springfield” in the center of the lock. There is are view and proof marks on the left side of the barrel.
The overall condition is very good. The action is strong and tight. The bore is smooth and dark. The lock is dated “1808” both on the buttplate and lock. The stock remains solid and in good shape. Here is an original flintlock in fantastic shape that’s over 210 years old!
