I would suggest that you experts take a look at a few reference materials before you make pronoucements on the origin of the gun. You may want to start with the Flayderman's and then review Springfield Armory shoulder weapons by W. D. Ball. Nearly all muskets, foreign and domestic had bayonet attachment lugs.

YES, but the sea service musket used the front sight post as the bayonet locking lug..............Where is the bayonet locking lug in this picture ?

Howdy all,
I took the musket to a local antique firearms dealer who said it's a French musket from Revolutionary war, not a reproduction.

Good follow-through. It least there are two of us that know the origin.
