In 1763 France adopted a new infantry musket, more strong than the previous one, to answer the needs of an accelerated fire coming from the war tactics developed during the Seven Years War.
The new gun was found too heavy and was replaced after only three years by the 1766 Model, promoted by M. de Montbeillard, inspector of the Manufacturer of Saint-Etienne, built in more of 150,000 units until 1769. After this date it has been replaced by the Model 1770/71 and the muskets given back from the soldiers have been used in 1775 when the American Independence War started and France distributed numerous 1766 muskets to the troops of the new born United States of America.

An IX De Cavallerie
S202
Reproduction of one of the most representative models equipping the Napoleon troops. It equipped all the cavalry corps (hunters, cavalrymen, grenadiers, lancers, carabineers and dragoons) including the hussars, who however always preferred their 1786 musket, lighter and shorter. With small modification the gun was distributed to some infantry corps and to the navy. The cavalry musket was manufactured until the 1816 in about 225,000 units and several other European countries imitated it to equip their corps, like for instance the Royal Cavalry Carabineers of the Sardinia Reign, 1814.
Produced with smooth barrel and oil finished walnut stock, some of the metal furnitures are in brass, like the butt plate, the trigger guard, the side plate and the front band.

1708 Austrian S263
On 1792 Austria was involved in the Wars of Revolution and of the Empire; the War Ministry in Vienna had to face a new way to fight the Revolution corps, based on the need to quickly move the troops and on new infantry tactics. The belief was that the reason for the French victories was due to their Model 1777 musket, so at the end of the First Italian Campaign, a commission was charged to adopt new guns for the Austrian army. On the 26th of July 1798 came the new model, that even if inspired by the French model, has other typical Austrian features, like the voluminous front band, the ramrod with a new profile and the long bayonet with four edges. The musket Model 1798 is a well made gun, very strong and for some points it is better than its French progenitor. The stock is made of walnut, steel metal furniture , except the bands, the trigger guard and the pan that are made of brass.
