C1820 Indian / Afghan North West Frontier 16 Bore Flintlock Jezail Musket Wood Stock Inlaid With Bone Decoration & Original Ram Rod. Sn 12800. - 12800
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. 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 C1820 Indian flintlock jezail. It has a 43” long steel barrel with flared muzzle, brass barrel bands & original steel ramrod. The bore measures approx .6” (approx. 16 bore). It measures 59” overall length. It has a wood stock inlaid with pieces of bone and metal studs. It has the typical jezail curved butt with steel butt frame. It has a block with notch rear sight. The wood and metal have the wear and patina to be expected of a native Indian weapon of its age and the wood has some old, stable cracks . Its action works correctly. Price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique flintlock musket no licence is required to own this item in the UKif retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 12800
