M1861 US musket by Providence Tool Co. Dated 1863 at rear of lock. Assembled in a M1863 configuration, but this maker only made M1861 muskets. Barrel shortened to 34" long and bored smooth. Rear sight, buttplate, sling swivel, barrel band, several screws, and ramrod are absent. Internally, lock has good original bridle and sear, tumbler is broken internally, mainspring absent, and sear spring a poor replacement. Metal parts are a brown patina with some scattered pitting. Stock has a very old added finish with scattered expected handling marks and good edges overall. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
