    This weekend I picked up charleville that was converted to percussion, chopped down, and turned into a fowler. I believe its a 1777 model as it has the ribs on thr tigger guard and the cheek cut out. I also think its prussian due to the hammer. (cant show a picture of the lock right now. My uncle is making a new spring for it) Do any of you guys know what the nipple threads are? Also ill post pictures of the stock cartouches. Like I said before, I think its prussian but it could be belgian as well

    You'll need a thread pitch gauge to figure out the threads. Too bad it's been sporterized.

    Ya but its a great early war gun for a confederate cav. Western theatre infantry too. I need to lop about an inch more off the barrel. Theres a cutout where there was a sight at one point. Other then that I think its in good enough condition to shoot. Ill have it checked out first of course. Any idea what the cartouche marks mean?
