Item No.: 9246 Price : $4,250.00
Item : EXCELLENT SPRINGFIELD U.S. MODEL 1816 FLINTLOCK MUSKET
Description :
This is an original, U.S. Model 1816 Flintlock Musket manufactured at Springfield Armory in 1820. This is one of the Type I Model 1816 Muskets produced between 1819 and 1822. These have a separate lug for the rear sling swivel that passes through the trigger plate ahead of the trigger guard. This Musket is in very fine to excellent condition. It remains nearly 100% armory bright with just a few tiny pits on the barrel mostly between the lower and center band. The lock works very well. The musket has a fine bore. There are a few pits in the bore, but it is mostly smooth. The stock is in fine condition with a crisp inspector's cartouche on the left flat. There are a few tiny dings that have been smoothed. These are mostly between the nose cap and the center band. Large numbers of these flintlock muskets were converted to percussion for use in the Civil War. Original flintlock examples, particularly at this level of condition, are very hard to find. Stock no. 24104
