C1820-60 percussion half stock rifle for restoration. 40-3/4" octagon barrel signed at breech in script "L M L". Nice original sights, including fancy rear sight missing elevator and front sight with resoldered blade. Pleasing patina on all metal parts present, including pleasing 4-piece cutout patchbox. No ramrod. Trade lock included for restoration is marked BELL LONDON, it is missing the mainspring and doesn't fit the mortise perfectly, but seems like it could be made to work by a skilled individual. Also needed for restoration would be the ramrod, triggerguard, trigger assembly, lock bolt, escutcheon, and two screws for the barrel tang. Stock is in very good condition with no cracks or missing wood apparent, other than a little wood eroded from powder flash to the right of the barrel tang. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
