I have a revolutionary war musket that came out of my grand father's collection.
Where can I go to find out some info on this gun?

Thanks.

You can post pictures here and I will tell you all about it. Or PM me for my email address if you are serious. I know a lot about flint muskets.

Here is a small sample provided by the National Parks Service that may help you narrow it down

Most common would be the Charleville/French or Land Pattern (Bess)?English. But the colonists used whatever they could scrounge up. Militias armed themselves for the most part.

Images would certainly help. Any stamps or engraving on the barrel or lock?
