After more searching i located a 3rd smaller stockpile of these nepolise cache weapons. My original want was for a brown bess, not a later percussion model. 2 days ago there was more of the same unservicable crap.... today on a whilm i stopped by and somthing new showed up. They had no idea what they were setting on.... apparently it has been on a wall in somebodies office for so long that it was out of there system and priced as it should have been 10 years ago.

May i intoduce a 1791 east india company 4th model land pattern brown bess .75 cal smooth bore. Still covered in the factory shellac. As far as i can see shes functional, the primer pan is a nepolise replacement and its missing its front sling swivel but it sure beats the $4000 one that sold with no hammer and missing screws.

That's pretty sweet. Are you going to sell it? What do you suppose it's worth?

Its hard to tell... you never see this model for sale. Ima had one left with a bayo but it sold like 2 years ago.
http://www.ima-usa.com/british-east-...-one-only.html

They still have parts kits with semi inlet stocks.

Mine still has the factory shellac on the barrel and stock...its been refinishe in nepal before it was put in storage in 1850. I would not take 4k for it, it would have to be a bit higher before i would ever sell it.

Nice find!! Yours looks pretty darn nice from what i can see in the pics. The one in the link you posted looked like a long paper weight in comparison. I'm assuming that since they didn't know what they were sitting on, you were able to practically steal it, no?

The brown bess was mothballed in Nepal in 1850. 223 year old gun being fired for the first time in 164 years.

1791

George Washington was president (George Washington would have used a brown bess while he was in the British army and most certainly during the American revolution) Most of our founding fathers if not all would have been very accustom with the land pattern brown bess muskets.

Washington DC was named.

Our bill of rights were completed.

Even though this rifle is old enough to have been around during the early years of our country it was off in another land oppressing another people.
