1810 Dated Afghan Jezail £325


An incredibly interesting Afghan jezail with a 1810 dated East India Company flint lock that has been converted to percussion lock. Whilst looking crude these muskets were part of the armaments that stopped Britain and Russia, two of the greatest Empires on the planet at the time, a devastating weapon used by one of the deadliest tribal warriors. The stock is a hardwood connected to the barrel with pins and a number of brass bands. There is a makers mark on the barrel in what I would assume is the period equivalent of Pushtu or maybe Urdu.

The spring in this musket is currently non functional and would be a good candidate for restoration.

This musket can be yours for £325 or best offer.
