C1750-70 assembled percussion conversion musket. 43-1/2" British style barrel. French style lock and boldly French proofed stock. Metal parts have dark patina overall, one sling swivel is absent. Stock appears to have been made for only two barrel bands, with the lower one being an old replacement. Stock shows average wear and use with two repaired cracks on either side of the barrel tang. From an Newburyport, Massachusetts estate, where it resided for well over 100 years. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
