Model 1842, .69 caliber musket manufactured at Harpers Ferry.

The barrel is a full 42” in length and in overall nice smooth condition. Light surface oxidation scattered on barrel and especially on bolster. An 1845 date on the breech tang. Viewer and proof marks remain clearly stamped on left breech with eagle head and inspector’s initials (AR / P). Bayonet lug is on underside of barrel at the muzzle. Smoothbore; clean bore. The original ramrod is present; threaded end cut off.

The hammer and lock plate are in good condition. The eagle is all but worn away while the “US” is visible. “HARPERS / FERRY / 1845” is strongly stamped behind the hammer. Action is strong but hammer does not hold at full cock. All metal parts: barrel bands, band springs, trigger guard, butt plate, and swivels are present.

The walnut stock is in good condition; moderate dings, dents, and scuffs. A single faint oval cartouche is visible on left flat. Several initials are carved into the butt stock.

This is a nice, clean Model 1842.   [jet]  [ph:L]
