Nice commercial export P1853 Enfield musket, marked on lock "BARNETT/LONDON" and proofed on barrel. 39" barrel bored to about .60 caliber smoothbore. Metal parts have a dark chocolate patina with some pitting in the barrel breech. Nice handmade ramrod. Rear sight and sling swivel are absent. Stock is shortened to just in front of the lower barrel band, shows evidence of old added finish and is well-worn, free of cracks and chips. Hammer has spring tension but does not cock. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
