Please click the image for a larger version
Rare and unusual Lindsay superposed double rifled musket. Only 1,000 were made that were used in one civil war battle before being shelved for unsatisfactory performance. This musket is unmarked with the left hammer removed. Metal parts are a mix of uncleaned patina, storage rust, and some old lacquer on the barrel. Final 2" approximately of the barrel muzzle is restored, but not readily apparent from the outside. Forearm is restored from behind the lower band in a visible splice, has a repaired crack in the wrist and some wood missing on left side of frame. Hammer has spring tension but does not cock, mechanical condition of left side unknown. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
