French fur traders introduced the Type C fusil to Canada, as early as 1680. It was the standard French trade gun, until replaced by the simpler Type D fusil about 1730. No two Type C fusils were exactly alike. Two styles were made: the fusil ordinaire was not decorated, while the fusil fin had engraving on the buttplate comb and triggerguard finials.
