DA-004-D-(10693)-JJE-HARPERS FERRY Model 1816/1831 U.S. .69 cal. Smoothbore musket, missing most of the forend (cut down), but retaining the full length 42” barrel. Converted to percussion at the arsenal (bolster-style by lopping off the breech end, and installing a patent-breech in 1855.) Cleanout-screw and original nipple intact, the breech end is marked, “CITY OF PHILA”, and stamped with the US government acceptance inspector’s name, “A WURFFLEIN.” (Andrew Wurfflein, a gunsmith and weapons inventor in his own right, made many rifles, muskets, pistols, etc. from his own shop in Philadelphia, also hired to inspect all those imported muskets coming in from Europe and elsewhere, which he marked as well. ) Less the 8,000 converted in this manner, bearing many model dates and maker s of Civil War fame. Quite rear, and restorable. Lock fully functional, all markings clear, sound walnut stock, no pitting or rust anywhere. Retains much of the original chemical-browned finish. Barrel retains the bayonet lug, too. Bold markings, the lock reads, “HARPERS FERRY 1831”. With small eagle and US. Some of these were captured by Confederate forces when they took Harper’s Ferry during the war on more than one occasion. A great restoration project at a great price. Retains trigger guard sling swivel, too. All original , as-is. .SAFETY NOTICE: We do not sell firearms, only collectible antiques, if you shoot them it is at your own risk and we are not liable for anything you do.
