Click on an image to enlarge
This is a very attractive gun. It is an original .69 caliber Springfield Arsenal musket. The lockplate of the gun has a crystal clear Springfield Arsenal mark and the production date of 1838. In front of the hammer it has the clear and deep eagle stamping and the block letter "US". The action works crisply on each position. When these guns left the factory in 1838 they were made as a flintlock and were converted later on so they could still be used when the flintlock system was replaced by the percussion system. This is one that was converted by the firm of Lehman of Philadelphia. They cut off the breech of the barrel and added their distinctive style bolster. Many of them were used by soldiers on both sides during the Civil War because it is what they had in the local and state arsenals when the war broke out. The barrel is full-length at 42 inches. On the underside of the gun it still has both of the original sling swivels intact and they still pivots. In the channel underneath the barrel it has the original ramrod remaining. The stock has an attractive look to the American Walnut wood. On the flat of the stock opposite of the lockplate you can still see part of the inspector cartouches where the gun was approved for military service. This is an attractive displaying .69 caliber musket from the famous Springfield Arsenal with the Lehman Conversion.
