Description:

This Third Model Musket was manufactured in 1870 and has a block mounted blade front sight, two-leaf rear sight, band mounted lug for a bayonet, long musket forend secured by two barrel bands, "5" on top of the frame ahead of the hammer, "50" on the right side of the frame at the rear, musket/carbine type buttstock with brass buttplate, and sling swivels fitted to the front barrel band and bottom of the buttstock. The stock compartment contains the cleaning rod. The bolt has been converted to centerfire.

Rating Definition:

Fair with mottled brown patina and mild oxidation on the steel, aged patina visible on the well worn brass, general scrapes and dings, and moderate overall wear. The wood is also fair and has numerous scratches, notches, and dings throughout and a somewhat ill-fitting buttstock with some cracking and chipping concentrated in the wrist, especially the left side. Mechanically fine.
