HARPERS FERRY M1816 MUSKET CUT DOWN 2 BAND CARBINE 1835
Original Civil War Harpers Ferry M1816 Musket that has been cut down to a 2 band carbine. Has an overall beautiful patina that displays great. The mechanics are fully functional with tight crisp action. The Lockplate has the US / Eagle in front of the hammer and Harpers Ferry 1835 on the rear. The stock is in good shape for its age with normal wear from service. It does have a period repair as shown in photos that was done very well. So smooth you can barely feel the repair. Has some initials on the left side of the stock. The buttplate is US marked with matching patina. The barrel has been cut down to 30" and has the VP Eagle Inspector proof mark. Also has nice rifling remaining in the barrel. Comes with an original correct period ramrod. An awesome gun that will display strong in any Museum or personal collection and a fine addition the Alabama Cavalry! Please see all photos.
