1740 Prussian Potzdamn Musket (594)

With the help of John Hakes and the Late Kit Ravenshear we have produced the 1740 Prussian Potzdamn Musket. By this time, the very unique stock design had become firmly established. The 1740 has moulding around the tang and lock panels with full molding on the forearm. In 1773, a heavier ramrod (weighing one pound) was adopted because the Prussians decided it would speed up loading if they didn’t have to turn the ramrod over to ram the ball. In 1789, they started putting 3 flared upper thimbles on to make it faster to return the ramrod into the stock. The barrel is 41" tapered round in .75 or .77 caliber. The lock plate measures 6 3/4" x 1 3/16". The throw of the cock is 1 3/4".
