Description

Seller's Description:
Here for your consideration is a U.S. Model 1816 Musket {also known as model 1821} by Contractor L Pomeroy.Lemuel Pomeroy of Pittsfield Mass. produced approximately 21,600 model 1816's. I believe of the six contractors he was 2nd lowest in number produced. Eli Whitney, I believe is lowest. Lockplate is stamped L POMEROY with eagle above, stamped US 1837 at lockplate tang. 1837 may be the last year he produced this model. Lock is Very Good and All Original. Brown patina on outside surfaces, very minor pitting. Some heavy pitting at top of lock near cone area, in front of brass pan. This musket was converted from flint to percussion (useing the cone in the barrel & changing hammer conversion}. Inside of lock is Excellent, no rust or pitting, case hardening colors remaining on bridle, tumbler & sear. .69 Cal. barrel has been shortened to 37" fom the original 42". There had been some heavy pitting in the cone area and again behind lower band. From lower band up pitting is slight a little above lower band, then becomes almost non existant. Pitting has been arrested with blueing on barrel. There are letter stamps at breech {can't make out}. Black walnut stock has been shortened from 54" to 52". Mortise for original front top band spring has been filled with wooden matchstick {concealed under top band}. Stock is Good very long grained with typical dings and scratches (some photos actually make look worse than it is}. May have got very dry at one time, but have paste waxed it, and is still very sound. Bands inluding two loop front band with brass blade front sight are all original {excepting that 2 loop band I placed a loop back on front loop, as someone had cut it to make it fit barrel at new position}. Top band spring is one I made, and also ramrod I made by turning a button shaped tip, and welding to a .187 steel dowel, it stays flush with barrel & fits ramrod channel nicely. Trigger bow is very good with very little pitting. Buttplate is stamped US on tang and has usual light to moderate pitting. Lower band has heavy to moderate pitting. Middle band moderate pitting. Top band only slight pitting. Swivels move freely. This would have been a very nice musket if someone had not cut 5" off barrel and 2" off stock. I've had this musket 11 years, and is all original with exception of ramrod, front loop of top band & front band spring. I have fired it many times with light load & functions perfectly. My repairs in my opinion were an attempt to correct the stupid alteration of this nice musket, probably done a long time ago. I only wish the musket could speak and tell its history. Any questions please ask. Please view my other listings.
