Rarely seen 1816 musket with a Maynard tape conversion by Remington Arms. Remington was contracted to build 20,000 of the Maynard conversion locks. The barrel is 42 inches. Caliber 69. Remington lock dated 1857 and "US". The same date is on the barrel. "US" is stamped on the buttplate. There are a couple of cartouches and other marks which are faint and somewhat readable. There are several marks all over this gun. Must be different unit numbers etc? Stamped on the barrel is "N J". Only 2,000 were marked as such for the New Jersey Militia. This is a standard musket style with 4 bands with the front having 2 bands together on the forearm cap and incorporating the front sight. Cleaning rod is present. A lot of good eye appeal in this gun. Pretty much grey metal all over with the lockplate being grey/brown. Wood has a few cracks. Great conversation piece or mantel gun. A rare piece of History.
