Click on an image to enlarge

This is a very good looking musket for the price! It is an original .69 caliber military musket from the famous Springfield Arsenal. The lockplate has the clear "US" and eagle marking as well as the desirable "SPRINGFIELD" arsenal mark and 1838 production date. The action works crisply on both positions. The barrel is full-length with the original proof marks still partially visible at the base of the barrel. It also has the matching and correct 1838 production date still visible. When this one left the arsenal it would have been a flintlock and later it was converted to percussion so it could still be used for military service in either the Mexican or Civil War. It has both of the original two sling swivels still intact and they still pivot. It has a modern made replacement ramrod of the correct style in the channel underneath the barrel. The stock has a very pleasing look all over and you can see the inspector cartouches on the flat of the stock opposite of the lockplate. These .69 caliber smoothbore muskets were heavily used during the Civil War by the infantrymen of both sides because it is what they had in the arsenal when the war broke out. '
