This rifle is pictured on page 448 of "American Military Shoulder Arms, Volume II: From the 1790s to the End of the Flintlock Period" by George Moller and has his small "GDM" collection mark by the toe. Moller notes that this rifle is from the first year that North began delivering rifles with the brown finish. It is dated "1826" on the lock and "1827" on the barrel tang and has the standard markings and features, a black leather sling, and a turn-screw, vent pick, worm, and ball puller in the patch box. Provenance: The George Moller Collection
Very good with attractive blend of brown finish and brown patina (finish strongest on the patch box), vice marks at the breech, minor oxidation, and some mild pitting around the vent. The stock is fine and has mild scratches and dings and a few minor cracks and flakes. Mechanically fine.
