This is a cool looking gun! This gun is very interesting as well. The lockplate of the gun has the desirable "VIRIGINIA" marking as well as traces of the Manufactory. Behind the hammer it has the Richmond, Virginia production location as well as the 1820 production date. As for the gun itself, it has a very cool design that is different than the standard Virginia Manufactory muskets. The Barrel is full-length at 38-2/4ths inches. It has the stud style front sight so a socket bayonet could be attached. AT the breech of the barrel it has the "P" stamp proof mark still visible. The gun would have been a flintlock originally but was converted with a drum style bolster conversion. These were often done by Southern shops when the Civil War broke out. The mechanics of the lockplate still catches on both positions. The gun is constructed with a Brown Bess looking brass buttplate made of brass. It also uses a brass triggerguard and ramrod channel guide. It has the wooden ramrod guide forestock that is an ancient replacement. It has an iron ramrod in the channel. The stock of the gun has a gorgeous look to the walnut wood with the hand checkering at the wrist. This is an original 1820 dated lockplate Virginia Manufactory musket with tons of character.
