Item No.: 9245 Price : $7,950.00
Item : RARE VIRGINIA MANUFACTORY 2ND MODEL SHORT MUSKET
Description :
Here is a rare original Virginia Manufactory 2nd Model Short Musket manufactured in Richmond, Virginia in 1817. Basically the "Charleville" or U.S. 1795 Pattern, the 2nd Models were were produced from 1812 to 1821. The standard .69 caliber musket had a 42 inch barrel. This is a much rarer "Short Musket" or Carbine with a 36 inch barrel and the three barrel bands spaced accordingly. The musket is in very fine condition, remaining nearly 100% armory bright with just a few tiny speckles of brown. The lock and mechanics work very well. While the exterior metal surfaces have been meticulously maintained, the bore is dark and shows significant pitting. The stock has been professionally restored. There is evidence of a break through the wrist and a piece of wood has been replaced on the bottom of the left flat of the stock. Whoever did the work was a master, as only a careful examination reveals the repairs. The stock is beautiful now with only a couple of small dings that have been smoothed. Even with the professional restoration, this is an extraordinarly rare and desirable musket. Stock no. 24108
