Early French Fusil de Chasse, or hunting gun, used from the 1680's to the 1760's. These guns were used throughout the 18th Century but the styling slowly changed as time progressed. Many of them were also carried by French officers who wanted a lighter firearm. The French Fusil de Chasse were traded to other countries as time went by, most notably to Greece, Mexico, n' several South American countries.
