Springfield M1847 cavalry rifled musketoon. Original configuration, but captive ramrod and ring bar removed, but this is not one of the armory altered models, and parts could be replaced to restore its appearance. Dated 1847 on lock and 1853 on barrel. Metal parts are in very nice condition with strong markings, minimal pitting, and an attractive patina. Rear sight screw replaced long ago with a pin. Stock is worn with an older added varnished finish, ramrod channel wide from worn chips missing, small crack by rear lock bolt, and a couple age checks in the butt. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
