For all discussions relating to the First and Second Afghan Wars of 1839-42 and 1878-80.
What weapons were used by the British troops in the 1st Anglo- Afghan war? Were the Brunswick rifles used?

Weren't the British infantry serving in India still armed with the Brown Bess musket when they fought the First Anglo-Afghan War?

I think they were still armed with the India Pattern flintlock. The new 1839 pattern percussion muskets seem first to have been used in China in 1842 .
