Click on an image to enlarge

This is a very good looking original Civil War era weapon, especially for the price! This one looks has a pretty and well worn look all over. It is an attractive gun of the U.S. model 1842 military musket. This one is from the desirable arsenal at Harpers Ferry and is so marked on the lockplate. It also has the production date of 1851 stamped behind the hammer and still partially visible. The action works perfectly on all positions. The barrel is full-length with the traces of the correct inspector proof marks at the breech of the barrel. The gun has been shot enough to have worn down the nipple as you see. It has one of the original two sling swivels present. The ramrod in the channel underneath the barrel is a incorrect style modern made replacement . The walnut stock on this gun displays very well and has a medium grain to the walnut with the bumps and bruises from being used in service. This is an attractive .69 caliber model 1842 Harpers Ferry with an 1851 production date. We got a good buy on this gun and thought we would pass it along.
