About Product

For several years, we have been asked to produce an affordable 1847 US Cavalry musketoon. Growing interest in this item, has finally warranted development and we are proud to be the only company in the world currently offering this musketoon. This weapon will make a great accessory for reenacting the western expansion period and the American Civil War.

This musketoon was originally developed for the US Dragoons in 1840's to replace the breechloading Hall carbine. Although there were 3 models of this musketoon, we have chosen to develop the cavalry model. There were 6703 of the cavalry model produced at the Springfield armory between 1847-54. It has a swivel ram rod and does not accept a bayonet. This was the first official percussion musketoon produced by the US that wasn't a flint conversion.  These firearms were used throughout the the 1840's-60's. Some of these musketoons were rifled in the 1850's with dubious results. Most saw service during the American Civil war.
