MODEL 1842 BAVARIAN RIFLED MUSKET

$1,950.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 998-44

This large rifled weapon is the Model 1842 Bavarian musket in .72 caliber.  This weapon measures 56” overall with a 41” round barrel. Barrel surface is mostly smooth and bright with light surface oxidation overall. No inspector stamps are found on the breech (or anywhere on this musket). The unusual rear sight is hinged and “folds” to sight in at various distances. The blade site at the muzzle sits just behind the upper barrel band. The bore is clear with light oxidation and good rifling. Three iron bands hold the barrel in place and they in turn are secured by band springs. Sling swivels are mounted on the middle band and the trigger guard. Original ramrod is threaded on lower end and has a bell-shaped cup on upper end.  All iron is semi-bright with small patches of surface rust.

Lockplate is flat and unbeveled. No stampings. Hammer is similarly “square” edged. Mechanically strong and crisp.

The stock remains solid with very few of the usual dings and dents. A characteristic of this style musket is the flat surface along the bottom of the stock and on barrel bands.   [jet]
