Offered here is a rarely surviving Model 1816 .69 caliber smooth bore flintlock musket that, while the hammer and frizzen are clearly replacements, remains in its original flintlock state. A most desirable feature when the vast majority of the then outmoded Mod. 1816 were converted for State militia and later Civil War service. The workhorse of the U. S. Infantry in the Mexican-American War the Model 1816 was pressed into service during the Civil War in both the updated percussion and, especially in the South, the old flintlock format. The source of some considerable political controversy in the early days of the Civil War as many loyal Unionists came to believe that that the 1850s Secretary of War Jefferson Davis had something special in mind when he caused large shipments of the old model muskets to be removed from Northern arsenals for delivery to those located in the soon to be Confederate South. The tail of the lock is marked HARPERS/FERRY/1817 with the old style Federal Eagle and US forward of the hammer. The top of the barrel bears the view and proof marks "P" and an Eagle’s Head. All measurements are correct for this model. While our photos will offer the best description of condition suffice it to say this nearly 200 year old Harpers Ferry, Virginia arm remains in pleasing condition with a deep chocolate brown age patina over all, is complete with good evidence of age and period use and handling yet with no splits or breaks in the walnut stock. The action is still strong and functions crisply. In short this nice old Harpers Ferry will sit nicely in among nice condition period issued equipage. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
