M1841 US "Mississippi" rifle by Robbins & Lawrence and dated 1850 on lock. Bore of about .60" and smooth, may have been a .58 rebored rifle that was shot out, as it appears to be heavily fouled in the bore. Drake alteration style with 100-300-500 yard rear sight and combination front sight-socket bayonet lug. Metal parts are cleaned with a light patina on the iron parts with some minimal pitting. Good barrel proofs. Old replacement ramrod. Stock is fair with worn flat but mostly readable cartouches. Wood is well worn and cleaned but in sound condition with a small crack by the lock screw and some minor chipping in the ramrod channel. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
