Between 1756 and 1813 the English ’Board of Ordnance’ required the production of shorter versions of the regular infantry musket. The barrel lengths varied from 26″ to 37″, equipping the corps of the dragoons, grenadiers, the Royal Horse-Guards and artillery, as well as some volunteers corps.
The Brown Bess was the musket used by the English troops during the Empire extension and consolidation in India and America. Veteran of the Seven Years War, it was used also by Wellington during the war in the Iberian Peninsula and at Waterloo. The infantry troops of almost the entire world used it, from the European Nations allied with the English to the Mexican troops, who used it until the last battle with United States on the 13th of September 1847 at Chapultepec.
Pedersoli’s reproduction has a lock with the signature of the gunsmith William Grice and the date 1762, the crown and the alphabetical letters GR (Georgius Rex). The smooth bore barrel is made of steel, satin finish, the walnut stock is oil finish. Available also with bayonet and the scabbard.
