Item Description: Translate description
About .75 caliber, 13 1/4” barrel with a very good bore. The barrel is an overall lightly tarnished goldenrod patina with some sparsely scattered light handling marks, showing “London” and British proofs at its rear. The lock and percussion hammer are an overall dull brown patina with very minor scroll engraving; the arm is a conversion to percussion from flint by the drum and nipple method. There is a simple ramrod thimble and tailpipe with the triggerguard showing a nicely chiseled front extension with simple floral engraving on the bow, the tang of the butt as well shows some light engraving as does the sideplate. The English walnut stock rates very good as lightly refinished many years ago, showing two repairs to the forend left and right flanking the barrel channel and a well-done repair to a chip at the left-hand side of the tang. The stock retains a number of minor bruises and handling marks from the years and is coarsely checkered at the wrist. The top snap bayonet measures 11 3/4” overall length with a full-length face flute and three-quarter-length back flutes. It is a gray and brown patina with overall light pinprick pitting. The spring is robust and the bayonet locks in place well, its catch is somewhat loose. The lock is crisp and mechanically functional and what is likely the original ramrod with wad-pull end is included. (37082-6) {ANTIQUE}

Estimate: 2500 - 3500
