> The picture is from 1968, however, that Jezail might very well be from England’s time in Afghanistan, the 1840’s and on.
That was a joke mate relax.
>The Brown Bess was a smooth bore rifle and was accurate at 50 yards with an effective kill range of 150 yards.
Wrong. It was accurate against single targets at 50 yards it was accurate against massed targets at 150 yards it could kill a lot further than 150 yards. The Jerzail was also a smoothbore musket and as such it sufferd from the same accuracy problems associated with all smoothbore muskets including the Brown Bess.
>**Some** Jezail’s were rifled and accurate up to 300 yards.
It could possibly be true that some were rifled but your original statement says outright that all Jerzail were more accurate than other smoothbore muzzleloading muskets. Which can’t be true unless they used some sort of Pashtun magic in their muskets. More likely the effectiveness of the Jerzail was exagerated for a number of reasons.
