John Gunderson Antique Militaria
Austrian 69 caliber percussion musket - $650.00

Please click the image for a larger version
Austrian 69 caliber percussion musket. Very unusual in that it has an American H&P bolster-breech conversion applied to it, clearly done after the gun had seen some use, as evidenced by the greater amount of pitting on the barrel compared to the breech. Metal parts are uncleaned with scattered light rust and pitting. Stock has a dark patina and shows average wear and use with a couple minor cracks in the ramrod channel and a couple minor slivers in the ramrod channel. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
