Default Oriental musket with kabyle snaphaunce lock for id.

This musket has a typical kabyle lock ,the full stock is covered with panels of bone . I have never saw before an oriental gun of similar shape .
May be rick could tell me more about this well decorated gun ?
Any comment on it would be welcome.

Hi,

I have seen this one. Did you buy it???
For me it's a very good one, not Algerian/Kabyle but from Morocco.
Only the trigger looks Algerian to me.
I've seen similar before, I would say end of 19th or even beginning of 20th c.

Hi Kubur,

Yes I Bought it.
If you have a picture for a musket with this similar shape ,please post it here.
I already spend a lot of times looking on George Cameron Stone's and Elgood books etc.. but this not found similar exemplar.
I have many morrocan riffles but no one like this one ,I aggree that the snaphaunce lock is morrocan but I still not sure that the full gun has the same origine .

Hi Cerjak,

I will post some Moroccan examples later.
The trigger guard is also very similar to Sardinian flintlocks.
But it's true that this model is not very common.

Best,
Kubur
