Nothing used at this time but I do have a few "scratch and dents" that you might be interested in.  Each of these are new but have some ugliness to either work with or live with.  I will describe as best I can and even tell you things that you might not be able to see in the picture.


None of these three muskets have been vented.  None have had the frizzen hardened, Nor have the locks been examined.  They are being sold at a low low rate so that you can do the repair work yourself and have a great deal but I can be bought so if you want me to do any work on them it will be at the service rate of $50.00/hr.


These three muskets are being sold AS-IS with no returns. Please ask any questions before you buy! 603-835-9047 or shoot me an email.   ekkathan@myfairpoint.net

French Blunderbuss = $400.00

plus shipping

This would appear to be some shipping damage that was no doubt caused by the lock of another musket rubbing on this unprotected surface.  There is a stain/varnish finish to this piece so you would either have to strip it down and re-do or try to blend in the damaged area.

Same French Blunderbuss but I had to shut off the flash so you could see the inletting around the tail of the lock.  Not so good here.  The rest of the lock is okay.

Look closely In this photo and the next two photos.  See the repair?  We are looking at the top edge of the comb which apparently had a break.  The broken area was cut out and a new piece crafted in its place, then shaped withe the rest of the stock, stained and varnished.  They did a nice job and it was difficult to get the camera to reveal anything but it's there.

PILLOW BLUNDERBUSS #005 = $350.00

Nothing wrong here.

Nothing wrong here.

Here's the problem!

USED_PBB005_6.JPG

Here too!  (same gun just no camera flash so the color is washed out.)

USED_PBB005_8.JPG

Not the best inletting I've ever seen!

USED_PBB005_9.JPG

In this photo it may be hard to see but the frizzen points to the left and the cock points to the right.  Flint will still strike the frizzen but it will be mostly on the right hand side.  Since the lock is forged you can bring it back into alignment.

PILOW BLUNDERBUSS #091 = $380.00

USED_PBB091_2.JPG

Nothing wrong here.

Nothing wrong here either.

USED_PBB091_3.JPG

This looks good too.

USED_PBB091_5.JPG

Aaaah, here's the problem!


USED_PBB091_6.JPG

Must have had too much breakfast blend coffee.

Like the one above, the frizzen and the cock could line up a little better but this one isn't quite as noticeable.
