Flintlock Khyber Pass musket, marked "WARRANTED" on lock and British proofed on barrel. 37-1/2" barrel of about 0.81" bore. Iron parts have an untouched dark patina with some scattered pitting, brass parts are lighter. Stock pins were reinforced with brass wire during the period that is nicely attached with decorative tacks, one of the wire wraps loosened at some point. Stock has other decorative tacks in the comb of the butt and a name "SADRAG.M" in left side of butt. Stock is well-worn with a smooth patina overall and scattered moderate marks from handling and use. There is an old break in the forearm between the wire wraps, a piece of wood in the toe of the butt may have been reattached, and there is a thumbnail-sized bit of wood filler in the left side of the butt. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
