Swedish model change from Saxon matchlock musket. Approximately 1710-16. Ca, 1715.

COMBS PARAGRAPH is 23.3 cm long, back of a length of 19.5 cm octagonal, but because 16-angular. At the front end of the two insvarvade and a raised edge. Approximately 5.3 cm further forward going around the circular bar a couple insvarvade stripes. A right narrow grain sits 5.5 cm behind the barrel muzzle. The sights are inlaxat in ventricular paragraph 14.5 cm in front of the rear pipe end. Visibility beam has small wings and a forward-facing feet. Above and behind the sight is chamber piece over page in a few mm length increased. Trump is weak trumpetformig, then barrel outside diameter of the grain is 23 mm, but at the very mouth of 25.5mm. The chamber piece upper side there is a peculiar stamp with a pair of raised dots. On W side are remnants of Suhl chicken, a stamp with "SVL" and one with a couple of letters, probably "AR" monogram in over a cross. Cross screw bottom-barrel has three leaflets.

LOCK have the original luntlåsblecket, which is oval and rear terminates in a tip. The - for luntlåshanens axis is not clogged. The lock has not varhake, nor bridle. Flintlåshanen is flat with brackish edges on flat and on he-neck outside but the rear is hanhalsen slightly rounded. Lip screw head has almost the shape of an inverted, truncated cone with a rounded base and scored. Lips become further forward and have rounded front edge. Also, the pan is luntlåsets and has nearly hemispherical trough. It is held at the rear of an extraneous screw until a rivet. Eldstålet is conventional flintlåstyp. Eldstålsfjädern is blackened and its screw screw goes outside, but its bay sits a little behind the - for the front screw. The - for eldstålsskruven go through the lock plate below fängpannans front arm, whereby the screw gets little support. Mainspring is rather short and not plastered. The change to the Flintlock has apparently been carried out with great haste and not particularly skillfully. On the striker inside the opening spring is an indistinct stamp with three letters, probably SVL. Two locking screws.

STOCK of white paper. The piston has the right rounded shapes. The through-broken by an approximately 11 cm long and 3 cm wide - in which he-would instickas when the bayonet was used. The log ends 9.7 cm behind the barrel muzzle.

SEIZURE of iron and consists of baking, which is made of thin plates, big, with hand support provided trigger guard, the rear arm is held with a wood screw, but the front is attached to the bottom inserted cross auger, avtryckarebleck, which is held by two pins, 1:02 , 5 wide steel band that goes around framstockens lower part a bit behind laddstocksrännans front end and the ends are folded in piprännan and a 2.2 cm wide näsbleck. Varbygelns both arms are conveniently total phase. Demanding and rörkor has never existed, but all this was replaced by the above, around framstockens bottom of transient iron plate belt. The gun has never had a side-plate or rembyglar.

LADDSTOCK of wood missing hardware. Any device for attaching bayonet there is not, but is likely to have been removed by amendment of the flintlock.

Utst-label "Musket about 1690, as amended in Sweden about the 1715th Caliber 19 mm. Flintlock. Race Rel. Length 56 cal. Trophy from Saxony." In Model hall's reversal was this weapon singularly with AM 1932:4065 as "Mousqvetter and Infantry Rifle, Swedish, with matchlock 1688, 2". In 1813, the inventory of Model chamber at Conscript hopper is received except a "Mousqvette, Saxon, with Lundt Lock, 1590 year" also a "Mousqvette, Saxon, 1670 years", which is probably identical to that described above. In 1759 years rustkammarinventarium of trophies mm found this musket termed "Saxon matchlock Mousqveter approberade to flintlås with the same tinplate, st. 1". The Artillery Museum's furniture called Force 1879-89 "gun with flintlock for Swedish Infantry, changed from matchlock musket, about 1690."
