A Musket is a muzzle-loaded, smooth bore long gun, fired from the shoulder. Muskets were designed for use by infantry, and soldiers armed with such had the designation musketman or musketeer. Replacing the infamous hand-cannon (arquebus), the Musket consisted of a lock, stock and barrel allowing easier wield, transport and improved accuracy. Despite its widespread use the Musket retained a long reload time - leading to continuous advancements in both the gun’s design and tactical use until it was made obsolete by the more-advanced rifled musket. Features multiple grip points and familiar styling your minifig troops are sure to appreciate. Fits most standard minifig hands.
