Springfield M1866 "Second Allin" conversion of 58 caliber musket to .50-70 cartridge. Dated 1865 on lock. Metal parts are clean with a light gray patina overall and a little granular pitting on the lock and barrel breech area. Stock is good, showing average wear and use with evidence of having been lightly sanded and refinished. Cleaning rod channel shows slivering to the edges and two cracks were repaired in the wrist. Buttplate tang has interesting rack marking "B/16/41". Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
