M1816 Springfield Type II musket. 1824 dated on lock, "4" of date clearly visible on barrel tang. Overall, a very attractive brown gun, with deep chocolate patina on metal parts, with minor pitting in the breech area. Stock very good, shows scattered minor marks and even wear from use. Unusual lead filled screw holes in lock plate from percussion conversion. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
