Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Period Gunsmith 1800's -- 1800's LONG BARREL PERCUSSION MUZZLE LOADER

MID 1800'S


This mid-1800's Percussion Muzzle Loaderwas purchased this past week from an estate our company dealt with in Northern Michigan. It is as found and has never been in a collection.

Rifle is clean overall and appears made by a period gunsmith. It measures 61.5 inches overall, has a 45.25 inch octagon barrel and weighs about 12 lbs. Bore has evident rifling and appears to be about .45 caliber. The finish to the metal components is consistant overall with browning to the steel and a rich patina to the brass (see photos). There are some markings to the sideplate but I can't make them out except for Cincinnati (see photos). Barrel has a fixed sight to the rear & blade sight to the front (see photos). Hammer has good spring tension but won't stay in the cocked position and appears to needs some adjustment. There is a set trigger.

Stock is very clean/solid overall and has a beautifully done period brass repair at the wrist. Trigger guard, buttplate & patchbox are brass as well (see photos). Ramrod has a metal tip, appears original & slides easily through the two ferrules below the barrel (see photos).

Great opportunity to add a early percussion muzzle loader to your collection. Please check my other auctions for other firearms purchased from the same estate.
