Click on an image to enlarge
This is a very attractive gun for the money. It is an original .69 caliber Harper's Ferry musket. Of course Harper's Ferry was the most famous of all arsenals even before it was taken over by Abolitionist John Brown. The lockplate of the gun has a crystal clear Harpers Ferry arsenal mark and the production date of 1821. In front of the hammer it has the clear and deep eagle stamping and the block letter "US". The action catches on the 2nd position but won't hold on the first position. When these guns left the factory in 1821, they were made as a flintlock and were converted later own so they could still be used when the flintlock system was replaced by the percussion system. 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 and at the breach of the barrel you can see the inspector proof marks on the barrel. On the underside of the gun it still has both of the original sling swivels intact and each still pivots. In the channel underneath the barrel it has the original ramrod remaining. The stock has an attractive look to the dark American Walnut wood. The gun has had some restoration and is priced accordingly. The wood has a replacement piece from the middle barrel band forward and they added a replacement original nosecap. It has a modern made replacement ramrod in the channel under the barrel. This is an attractive displaying .69 caliber musket from the famous Harpers Ferry Arsenal.
