European Matchlock Musket, 16th Century.

Muskets with matchlock were in use from the 15th century up to the 17th century by all European armies. They also were standard equipment for musketeers.

Before the invention of the matchlock it was necessary to put a burning match to the musket from the outside. Now it was clamped into the matchlock clamp. By means of a lever mechanism connected to the trigger the match was pressed onto the pan and lit the ammunition in the barrel. That meant that only one single person was able to operate the weapon. The rifleman had both hands free to hold the rifle. Beside this he was able to aim while pulling the trigger.

This reproduction of the early European Matchlock Musket is prefect for reenactment of the 16th and 17th century. It features a steel barrel with cannon muzzle and blade front sight. Its hardwood stock has decorative carving along its full length and a beautiful oil finish. The sear-type lock is true to the original in form allowing the cock to be lowered into the pan with a squeeze of the lever-style trigger.

Our firearm replicas are intended for decoration or re-enactment. The muzzles have not been drilled, so the weapon is not functional.

A beautiful item for every collection and an indispensable accessory for re-enactors.
