ArrowIn 1782, The Prussian Government issued a new musket referred to as the M1782, which was produced in
Potzdam Germany. This model was very popular and remained unchanged until the Napoleonic period.
ArrowThe new, smaller bore version that was later developed, is referred to as the M1801 or M1805.
The 1805 had only minor differences in design from it's predecessor, including rear sling swivel, trigger,
trigger guard and bore size, (from .75 cal to approximately .62).
ArrowMany of these muskets saw service throughout the Napoleonic era, including the battle of Waterloo.
ArrowSadly, this model was the last in a line of uniquely designed Germanic or Potzdam flint muskets, prior to the
general adoption of the French M1777, which resulted in the Prussian 1809 version.
