C1820-60 percussion halfstock rifle for restoration. 37-1/4" octagon barrel with nice original sights. Signature in script and date at breech of barrel, hard to read, possibly "S:Salers 184x" which looks like it was an earlier date that was struck over to represent the 1840s. Nice original engraved buttplate. No ramrod. Lock included for restoration is marked Henry Parker Warranted. Barrel has not been removed to see if it is original flint, reconversion, or hole for bolster. Stock is a nicely made replacement that is unfinished, needing the lock mortise, side bolt mortise, and triggerguard mortise cut. Restorer would still need ramrod, bolster, lock bolt, escutcheon, trigger assembly, and triggerguard. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
