M1817 US "Common" rifle by Starr. Dated 1825 on lock and barrel. Nicely marked overall, including New Hampshire mark on left side of barrel and a deep but unreadable cartouche in stock opposite the lock. Metal parts have an attractive dark patina overall with some scattered light to moderate pitting. Stock shows average wear from use, cracked in the forearm and in front of the triggerguard from having been broken and repaired, also has a gouge in the left side of the butt, and some wear by the patch box from prying to open it. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
