Item Description

Original item: Only One Available. We think this started life around 1816 as a Flintlock Musket most likely U.S. made, based on the large lock plate's shape. It was then converted to percussion in the 1830's and may well have seen service for the Confederacy in the Civil War. It saw its final years half stocked for civilian use, most likely on the frontier.

It has come from very long term storage and is offered as it came, un-restored and uncleaned. There is a chunk of wood missing behind the lock on the right hand side, but this could easily be restored. The barrel measures 34" and comes with ram rod, with an overall length of 49 1/2".

The musket is well used and could improve dramatically with that little bit of restoration and a really good cleaning.

Ready to clean up or display as is!.
