Description


The Pedersoli™ Brown Bess Rifle Kit is a .75 caliber flintlock musket in a do-it-yourself kit. The Brown Bess was used by British troops during colonization of American territories. It also saw action during the War of 1812 and during the Mexican-American War from 1846 to 1848. Like the originals, these smooth- bore .75-cal. flintlocks feature brass hardware, unstained walnut stock and steel ramrod, barrel and lock. The Pedersoli Brown Bess Rifle Kit features a 54" American Walnut one-piece stock which is accented by beautiful brass furniture.

This Brown Bess Musket Kit is an exact reproduction manufactured by Pedersoli™ in Italy. The .75 Caliber Brown Bess Kit features a 42" tapered barrel that is 1.250" at breech to .890" at muzzle. The .75 Caliber Musket Kit comes in a smoothbore (.750" diameter). The Brown Bess is engineered with a front steel stud sight, which doubles as a bayonet lug. This Flintlock Musket is designed to use 1" flints and features a single trigger, sling swivels and steel ramrod with 10x32 male threads. The Brown Bess is 58 1/4" in overall length and weighs 9 lbs.

One of the best ways to get a real hands-on muzzleloading experience is to build a rifle yourself. Easy to read instructions guide you through the building process to a finished product. There is no greater feeling of accomplishment than knowing you built a fully functional rifle for shooting or display. The Brown Bess Kit has a recommended load of 70 grains of FFg black powder and patched .735 round ball. This Pedersoli Brown Bess .75 caliber flintlock musket is great to take out in the field or simply display on your wall.

You get your money’s worth

I have the Pedersoli Brown Bess and two of the Charleville muskets. I have no complaints about any of them. Again no issues with three of Pedersoli muskets. They are muskets copies not exact replicas but not many would know or care! They are fun to shoot and easily maintained. You can play Concord and Lexington all day. Don’t expect to be a marksman with them if you’re looking for spot on accuracy by one of there period rifles. That’s not to say with practice, a patched round ball; even period correct paper cartridges either ball or buck and ball you can keep it on the target. Watch Dualist54 ! Big fun musket I have an audience every time I take it to the range. If you find you have what you consider issues they are warranted. Many purchase them and tweak them to their liking. Make no mistake they work right out of the box!

Crooked Ramrod Pipe Holes

When I received this item it came with crooked ramrod pipe holes causing them to be held in with very tiny amounts of wood in some places, any stress or rough handling of the ramrod, which the musket is designed to stand up to, will surely crack the stock; they also rattle around a lot. The vent hole was also positioned at the very base of the pan which isn't is grave of an error but still worth mentioning. A lot of side to side slop in the trigger is present.
