Original Danish / Norwegian Percussion Converted Rifled Musket Model 1769/1841 with Doglock Safety

Item Description

Original Item. Only One Available. This is pretty unusual, starting life as the Danish Flintlock 18mm smooth bore Musket of 1769, fitted with an early Doglock type safety on the hammer. The lock does have a true half-cock position, which may have been added when it was later to be converted to a Percussion rifle. This conversion most likely occurred in Norway, where it was fitted with a rifled barrel of 40 1/2 inches long. The overall length is 46 inches, with all brass mounts on a Beech Wood stock with folding long range sights fitted to barrel.

The rifle comes complete with its substantial iron and brass ram rod assembly. It is marked with serial number 6621 on the lock, barrel tang, barrel under the sight, and also on the stock under the sight on the right side. The stock stamped BC, which is also on the brass butt plate tang. There are additional marks on the lock, which we cannot decipher.

In really nice condition, fully cleaned, a rifle possibly used in the U.S. Civil War. Ready to display!
