Muskets, Rifles & Carbines

Historic muskets & carbines

We offer a range of muskets, rifles and carbines from several periods of history.
Our portfolio is extensive and most of our clients already have a good idea what they want and send us pictures, drawings sometimes even a sketch on a piece of paper to show us what they would like.
Our popular Muskets, Carbines and Pistols are manufactured by Master Craftsmen on our behalf in India, to our specifications and exacting standards. They arrive 'in the white' and we strip them back to their individual components and rebuild them in or workshop.
If this sounds like you then by all means do get in touch – if we haven’t made it yet, we will welcome the opportunity to work with you to produce something that is both aesthetically pleasing and also functional.
