Antebellum HARPERS FERRY U.S. 1842 Percussion MUSKET

US Musket Made in 1853 Commonly Used in the Civil War!

Here we present an antique Harpers Ferry U.S. Model 1842 Percussion Musket, manufactured circa 1853 in Harpers Ferry, Virginia. 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. Approximately 275,000 were manufactured between 1844 and 1855, with only one-third of these produced at Harpers Ferry. 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 “HARPERS FERRY 1853” and also has federal eagle stamp over “US”. The butt plate and bayonet are also “US” marked. The left side of the barrel features government inspector view and proof markings.

The overall condition is very good. The iron parts have a light gray patina with clear markings. The walnut stock is smooth and solid. The bore is smooth and clean. The action is excellent. Here is a wonderful example of an antebellum federal musket made at Harpers Ferry!

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

Barrel is 42 inches.

Caliber: .69 Percussion
