1811 US SPRINGFIELD ARMORY Model 1795 FLINTLOCK Musket WAR of 1812 Antique
Early Republic, First American National Armory
Here we present an antique U.S. Springfield Model 1795 Flintlock Musket, manufactured in 1811 at the Springfield Armory in Springfield, Massachusetts. The Model 1795 was a smooth bore, flintlock based musket and the first weapon system to be produced within the United States. It was designed very closely patterning the French “Charleville” Flintlock Musket that was used to by the colonists against the British during the American Revolutionary War.
Springfield Armory produced 80,000 of these muskets, with Harpers Ferry responsible for another 70,000. Production of this musket ran from 1795 through 1818. She found her way into several important American conflicts of the time, including the War of 1812 between the United States and the British Empire, the Mexican-American War, and even the Civil War. The 1795 would also be taken along by members of the American expedition led by Lewis and Clark from 1803 to 1806. Use of the Model 1795 was recorded as late as 1865 for the southern Confederate forces who were still fielding her late in the Civil War.
The overall condition is good. Bright finish. The action is excellent. The bore is smooth and patinated. The stock shows good inspector markings; the stock has been well-repaired all around the lock area of the gun and is stable otherwise.
