The Jezail was a simple, cost-efficient and often handmade muzzle-loading long arm commonly used in British India, Central Asia and the Middle East in the past. The firing mechanism is a sliding pan and a doglock hammer. The lower side of the stock where the action is situated is reinforced with decorative stained, carved bone fixed by metal braces with brads to the wood. The musket is blunderbuss barrelled with a full stock and engraved metal (silver/copper mix) bands. The steel barrel is heavily pitted with some rust, but the ramrod is present.

 

The musket is possibly a .56 or .60 caliber.

Overall length is 53 ¾” The rifle is encased and mounted in a museum grade wooden and glass frame.

Jezails were generally handmade weapons, and consequently they widely varied in their construction. Jezails were very personal weapons, and unlike the typical military weapons of the time which were very plain and utilitarian, jezails tended to be well crafted and were usually intricately decorated.

A lot of the style and pieces show 19th century style and time period in general. A lot of the work done on the rifle looks 20th century. This appears to be an old gun that was modified with various pieces. It is a show piece and would not be recommended for firing.
