Durs Egg Flintlock Breech Loading Carbine

    At the Institute of Military Technology, Museum Curator Corey Wardrop discusses the Durs Egg Flintlock Breech Loading Carbine.

    We begin by comparing the Durs Egg with the Jenks Breech Loading Musketoon. We discuss the history of development from the Crespi system, other firearms by Durs Egg, use and adoption, and interesting facets of the design itself.
