Muskets and Rifles
Get a musket and turn into a true musketeer! Muskets were firearms used in the 17th century in Spain and England for infantry. They were muzzle-loaded long guns using a matchlock mechanism, wherein the gunpowder is ignited by a burning piece of a rope that is touched to the gunpowder by a mechanism activated by pulling a lever.
Every musketeer was equipped, apart from a musket, with a leather baldric with poaches for gunpowder, and a powder horn with powder for the pan. Because of slow reload time, muskets were later replaced with flintlock pistols.
