"U.S. Model 1836 Flintlock Converted to Percussion (AH4909)
"U.S. Model 1836 Flintlock Converted to Percussion. Made by A.H. Waters. This gun is dated 1844. Metal has a light brown patina with spots of pitting. The conversion is done in the Belgian style. Action works fine. Many of these guns were readily converted for the Civil War. The Belgian style was the easiest to complete, but also the crudest.
