.69 caliber, 40" round barrel secured by three bands, the middle and upper both double strapped. Brass and iron furniture, full-length walnut stock with recessed cheek rest. Lock marked in script. Lock with round, bridled, removable brass pan and reinforced rounded cock. Appears to be original flint, with the top jaw and screw likely replaced.

Both sling swivels present, iron, trumpet head ramrod that has had its end converted to a ball screw, bayonet lug under barrel 1" from muzzle. A solid example of a French Revolution / Napoleonic Era dragoon musket.

The breech plug tang is slightly bent and gaps at the breech of the barrel. Mechanically functional, fair bore is dark, dirty and pitted. Stock with numerous bumps, dings, chips and mars and a couple of minor cracks around the lock mortise.
