C1800 French Colonial Musket £700


A strange and interesting example of c1800 French musket having most likely been made in Arabic speaking French Africa during the colonial period potentially for the Zouaves or Foreign Legionnaires. The Zouaves were a group of originally Berber soldiers loyal to France and had proved themselves fighting the Ottoman Empire. This musket is in almost every way a M1770 Charleville two banded short musket aside from the Arabic stamps. This musket can be yours for £700.
