The so-called "Indian Trade Musket" or "Indian Trade Gun" is nothing more than a cheap version of standard European flintlock musket. There is no sense to create a special page for this version.

I suggest to make "Indian Trade Musket" a redirect on "Flintlock Musket" page, as there was no single pattern of this gun (unlike Brown Bess or some other muskets that were produced in accordance with a strict pattern).

That's not actually a trade musket, you can see from the rear sight it's a cut-down Enfield P53. In fact you can't see the breech in the pictures but I'd bet it's a Snider-Enfield.
