1836 drum type conversion which uses original flintlock hammer with iron insert to strike cap. Lock threaded holes are lead filled.
Very rare type of early Civil War conversion and likely a Confederate piece. Smooth gray iron with dark lock. Action works. Stock has no cracks.
In 60 years of collecting I have only one photo of a rifle converted by means of this method.
