Muskets:
Muskets were of the regular flint pattern. The Brunswick corps used at least five different musket models. That does not include the dragoon carbine. Most of the muskets were supplied by the arsenal in Brunswick. It is not known what musket model was used by the different units. Brunswick lists show the use of the following muskets:
1. Muskets made at Zella. Possible made at Pistor.
2. The Prussian Model 1740 was supplied at the Seven Years War.
3. Muskets made in Maastricht (maybe Middelburg)
4. Manufactured in Blankenburg (Herzberg factory?)
5. muskets with steel fittings. Maybe French muskets bought or taken at the time of the Seven Years War.
