Unusual Austrian M1854 Lorenz musket - $650.00

Please click the image for a larger version
Unusual Austrian M1854 Lorenz musket. Has an 1843 dated Harpers Ferry M1842 lock, modified slightly to fit the gun. Bore is rifled but very rusty. Barrel was cleaned at some point, other parts not cleaned, with some light scattered pitting. Stock is a little rough, shaved down slightly where the middle band would have been, and a couple cracks/slivers in the ramrod channel. Overall, though stock is sound and free of major cracks. Missing middle barrel band and ramrod. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
