Antique SPRINGFIELD ARMORY 1842 Percussion MUSKET

Antebellum Musket Made in 1853

Here we present a Springfield Armory U.S. Model 1842 Percussion Musket, manufactured circa 1853 in Springfield, Massachusetts. The Model 1842 was the first regulation percussion musket to be manufactured at both Springfield and Harpers Ferry Armories, as well as the first to be produced by both national armories with fully-interchangeable parts. These were also the last .69 caliber smoothbore arms to be produced by the U.S. government. Along with usage during the Mexican-American War in 1846 through 1848, these would have been in the hands of local militia all over the antebellum United States and used by both combatants at the outbreak of the American Civil War.

The lock is marked “Springfield/1853” and also has the Federal Eagle stamp.

The overall condition is fair. The metal surfaces are dark with age. The markings are clear. The bore is smooth, dark, and dusty. There is a small hole near the muzzle. The walnut stock shows handling. It was sanded and refinished at some point. The action is strong. Here is a very affordable historical musket for your collection!

Own the original! This is a legitimate antique and not a reproduction.

Barrel is 42 inches.

Caliber: .69 Percussion
