1840 Conversion Civil War Musket in 69 Caliber
This unusual gun has a lock marked "Harpers Ferry 1843". The lock has been highly polished and has the Eagle and US also on the lock although difficult to read. The guns of this period were usually made by Springfield and it is possible Springfield used any available locks. It is a 69 caliber smooth bore and was converted from Flint to percussion via the bolster method. This particular rifle was converted by cutting the barrel off and a new breech with bolster inserted. This bolster has a clean out screw. Many of this type of conversions were rifled, but this on is not. These guns were issued to Union troops early in the war.
