M1861 style contract musket, dated 1863 on top of barrel. Original length, some metal parts have a dark patina, some are cleaned, showing some scattered pitting, mostly in the barrel breech area. Reproduction rear sight. Bore does not show rifling. Stock does not look like a factory stock, but also does not look new. Lock is similar to a Suhl contract musket, but does not exactly match. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
