I didn't find anything in the search for the Potzdam flintlock so,,,, anyone know if they would be a viable option in say the 1760-1770 time frame and say Fort Detroit to Michilimackinacarea? Also, how PC are the Middlesex Village Trading Companie flintlocks? Thanx in advance for any help.

Try searching for Potsdam musket rather than Potzdam - Potsdam (with an S) is how it's spelled on my original built in 1820

Depends on what you mean by "viable". Essentially, the MVT guns are generic Dutch/Germanic muskets.

In that time frame and area, you're in the transition from French to English governance. So you'd be a Frenchman, an English official of some kind (military, trader, Indian Dept. etc) or an Indian. None of them would have carried such a weapon.

They do have a history of use by/issue to Provincials in the F&I. But they would be the King's Arms. Not personal ones to be taken home.

Thank you, Mario. I didn't think so but thought I would check.
