U.S. Harpers Ferry Model 1816 Musket converted to percussion. This smoothbore muzzle loader is in just good condition and could use some restoration, if so desired. All metal fittings show rust and pitting to varying degrees. Lock markings are the standard, small 'Eagle / US' lightly stamped in front of the hammer. Behind the hammer is a three-line stamping 'HARPERS FERRY 1816', although this stamping was also not well executed. The mechanism operates in a 'catch as catch can' manner, the hammer locking only once every so many tries. Proof marks are almost lost, with only a partial proof mark visible on the reverse side of the hammer. Bore shows moderate pitting. Stock bears the usual dings and scratches, but no cracks. Both swivel slings present as is the original ramrod with its trumpet-shaped tip and threaded tip. Estimated accordingly.
