The Model 1816 musket was the most widely produced of any U.S. musket with nearly 700,000 being produced. A large number were converted to percussion prior to the Civil War. This example shows no signs of being converted. It has standard markings and features of the Type I variation, "1823" (faint) dated barrel tang, 1822 dated lock, and a "GDM" George D. Moller collection mark at the toe of the stock. Includes a US socket bayonet and leather sling. Provenance: The George Moller Collection
Good with gray patina, scattered moderate pitting overall and crisp lock markings. Artificial brown visible on the tang. Stock is also good as revarnished with scattered scratches and dents, a small repaired section ahead of the front lock screw, and a crack visible ahead of the rear lock screw. Mechanically fine. Included bayonet is very good with brown patina and defined edges.
