Description

The French Charleville musket was the principle battle weapon of the Continental Army during the American War of Independence. This .69 caliber smooth bore influenced American military arms design for the next 50 years. And after the war many veterans brought their old service arm with them to settle the frontier. In this video we’ll shoot a replica of the model 1766 Charleville musket, as built by the Italian firm Pedersoli and imported into the United States by Taylor’s & Co. of Winchester, Virginia.
