I have what I believe to be an early Brown Bess. It was found in the roof of our family croft in Morayshire ,Scotland. All the furniture is iron & there is no provision for either sling or bayonet, The barrel is 37 ins.long & on top of the stock there is a silver metal shield .The lock plate is held in place with wooden dowels.If you can supply any info. as to its origins etc. I would be grateful.

hi my name is TJ. Whats yours?


What great technology! Plus technology keeps getting more economical now, and that’s what people really notice. Wind energy, solar power, hybrids and zap EV’s, our choices are good. There are now electric cars being sold everyday, you just plug it into a regular power outlet. When people test drive them they say it’s far more fun to drive an EV.
