Here we have a scaled down musket from the 19th century. These smaller muskets were Cadet rifles made for Military Schools for boys and were fully functional! This one is approximately 50 caliber and is a two banded musket. The entire piece measurers 43 ½ inches long with a 29 ¾ inch long smoothbore barrel which has a lug on the top to mount a bayonet. There are no sights on this piece. The original ramrod is present as well. There are no markings on the barrel that I can see however I have not unmounted the barrel from the stock. The barrel was originally percussion but someone for some unknown reason took out the nipple and ground it down so that it could be used as a flintlock and installed an older European Flintlock lock into the stock. I have no reason why this was done. The stock is hardwood and in very good condition except that a different hole was drilled into it for the flint lock mounting screw. You can see where the original screw hole and escutcheon is that would have been the mounting screw for the original lock. Check out the name on the lock (I thought it says “FONBER” ) and if you know anything about the maker let me know and I’ll post it. I couldn’t find anything on the computer. The lock does not function as I pulled it off and saw that the internal mainspring is missing. The original buttplate is present as well as the trigger bow and swivel, and both barrel band / nose cap with swivel and stacking swivel. There are some scrapes of white paint on the reverse (left) stock. Could be a story here and if you know share it with me! I ship only by USPS Priority Mail/Insured.
