Swiss Flintlock

Hello All,

For your consideration, a Swiss flintlock of Belgian manufacture, with markings from Canton of Aargau.

Maybe an Ordonnanz 1817 type, looks similar to French 1777 types.

I agree with Oliver.

Also, typical Central Asian bipod on Tibetan example. Mongolian pieces are similar, but with straighter stocks.

Many thanks for your comments Gentlemen. I was wondering if the application of numbers/ stars are common on this model? I assume they are rack numbers to help with recording inventory at the armoury..

AnXI LC 1816, rack numbers

Hello,

Have this piece which I really like, starting to give it a gentle clean.

Are rack numbers like this usual on this model?

Many thanks for any assistance.
