1822 French Percussion Conversion (T BIS)

In 1839 the French started converting their 1816 and 1822 muskets to percussion by putting a steel insert in the lock plate and welding a nipple bolster on the barrel. A rear sight was added to the tang, the front sights were removed from the bands and are now installed on the barrel. All furniture and lock parts are the same as the 1777 and Year 9.
