The article presents information on the French Charleville musket. Gunsmiths in Charleville-Mézières, Maubeuge and St. Etienne produced the muskets. Most of the Model 1746 were made in the latter location. The Model 1748 and 1754 muskets saw service during the Seven Years' War, including its North American sideshow, the French and Indian War, and the rebelling U.S. colonists used them in 1775.
