1740 Potsdam Musket
About the 17th Century Prussia adopted the new flintlock muskets for their armies. First imported from foreign European countries they were soon manufactured by the 'Königliche Preußische Gewehrfabrique Berlin-Spandau', the Royal Prussian Rifle Factory. The model 1740 originates from the same year, when Frederick the Great became King of Prussia. It has been used by all German troops during the 2nd half of the 18th Century. It was standard weapon during the Seven Years' war and the American Revolution.
Our authentic reproduction features all of the attributes of this extraordinary weapon. The hardwood stock has a short comb
and an inlayed thumb-piece. Brass hardware, nosecap, and serpentine sideplate build a beautiful contrast with the walnut stained
stock. The German style is unmistakable. Especially the heavy ramrod is inimitable German.
Our flintlock replicas are intended for decoration or re-enactment only. In compliance with local, national and international firearms regulations, the muzzle has not been drilled, so the weapon is not functional. An expert gunsmith may alter this musket to a firing state by drilling the muzzle. However, we are not to be held legally responsible for any potential modification from its present non-firing state. You should check with your authorities if this is legal in your country.
