1695 le Fusil De Grenadier or Grenadier Musket (794)

These received their name from the military unit formed in the 1660’s to throw grenades at the enemy. It has sling swivels and a middle band to allow this. The 1690’s French Muskets are probably the most beautiful of all the French Military guns with its graceful lines and mouldings around the lock and tangs. They have a beautiful round faced double curved lock. There is a contract to Tulle dated May 24, 1695 for three hundred Grenadier Muskets for the “Campagnies Franches De La Marine” going to Canada. The 1695 uses three upper thimbles with a sling band. The only difference between a Grenadier Musket and the Fusil Ordinaire in this time period is the sling swivels. They put slings on the Grenadiers Muskets so they could have their hands free to throw grenades. This gun is identical to the Series (680) on the next page except this musket has sling swivels. The barrel is a 44 1/2" octagon to round, and is available in .69 caliber. The lock plate measures 6 5/16" x 1 1/8". The throw of the cock is 1 13/16".
