Please click the image for a larger version
Springfield M1842 musket, dated 1850 on lock. Metal parts have a dark uncleaned patina overall with some pitting present in the barrel breech area. Stock rates fair overall, shows average wear and use with numerous handling marks, especially on the butt. Wood is in sound condition with no major cracks, just a couple minor hairlines by the lock, some minor chipping in the ramrod channel and some erosion to the wood behind the bolster from powder burning. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
