Please click the image for a larger version
M1817 US artillery length musket by Harpers Ferry, dated 1820. Converted to percussion. Metal parts are mostly a dark patina with some scattered pitting, concentrated mostly in the nipple and buttplate areas. Stock shows a good deal of wear and use, as evidenced by the worn-through ramrod channel in the forearm. Stock shows some scattered minor cracks and chipping, but no major damage aside from the worn forearm pictured. Missing ramrod. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
