Please click the image for a larger version
"The Needlegun" single shot cartridge conversion of a French flintlock musket. 33" barrel, about 12 gauge. We have owned a few of these over the years, always missing the bolt and never with the marking on the receiver ring. Metal parts have an uncleaned patina overall. Stock is very good, showing minimal wear and use with some small numbers stamped in the butt. Lock and side plate were filled with a piece of wood to neatly cover the entire mortise, both of these are chipped where the wood was paper-thin. Has a small chip and loose piece of wood to the right of the frame tang. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
