C1840 percussion militia musket with lock marked MOORE & BAKER. Unknown faint barrel proofs. 42" round barrel of about .69 caliber bore. Brass parts are lightly cleaned, iron parts have medium patina overall with some pitting in the barrel breech area. Stock is restored from the lower ramrod pipe forward and nicely refinished to blend in. Wrist is nicely checkered, has a little chipping around one of the barrel pins, small check by the lock bolt, small crack behind the hammer, and a small replaced sliver left of the barrel tang. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
