Very fancy dual purpose fowler-musket for restoration. 37" round British proofed barrel. Metal parts have untouched patina overall with some rust on the barrel. We have included an original flint lock plate to help assist with the restoration, it is slightly oversized for the lock mortise. Forward portion of triggerguard is missing, as are multiple screws. Stock was "duffle cut" in the forearm, pins are absent and the wood is secured to the barrel with zip ties. Stock has several cracks in the forearm edge and several slivers missing, nicely carved "fan" around the barrel tang, some missing wood from the lock mortise, and a long crack between the trigger guard and ramrod pipe. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
