In 1795, the US adopted its first regulation musket. They were copies of the 1766 and 1768 French Charleville muskets used by American troops during the Revolutionary War. Those produced upon the 1768 Charleville pattern featured a lower band spring and a bayonet lug on the top of the barrel. Surprisingly, over half of the Type I Springfield muskets produced had their bayonets permanently brazed to the barrel.
The 1795 Springfield muskets would see service during all of Americaís early conflicts including the actions along the nationís expanding frontier and during the War of 1812. Many were later converted to percussion by the Confederacy.
Our reproduction 1795 Springfield Type I Musket is an accurate and beautiful recreation of this historic arm. It features a .68 caliber barrel, bright hardware, and brass blade sight. The dark stained stock contrasts boldly with the smooth silvery polish of the lock and hardware. Our reproduction is of the earliest form of the musket. These 3,500 Springfields were produced without lock markings. Accurate lock markings can be added for an additional $35.
As with all our weapons, it comes with a limited warranty. The musketís hammer (frizzen) has been adequately hardened and comes with a lifetime re-hardening guarantee. Bayonets are available.
