Description:

Only 4,213 Hall Model 1841 percussion rifles were manufactured in 1841 and 1842. Most of the relatively short production run utilized the "fishtail" breech lever like this example, which is also found on the Model 1840 Type II Hall carbines. It has blade and notch sights, brown lacquer finished iron hardware, casehardened breech block marked "H. FERRY/US/1841", and a button head ramrod. "GDM" (George D. Moller) collection initials marked at the toe of the stock. Includes socket bayonet and reproduction leather sling. Provenance: The George Moller Collection

Rating Definition:

Good with smooth gray and brown patina, mild pitting mostly concentrated on the receiver, and defined breech block markings. Stock is very good with some light scratches and dents, a few chips in the ramrod channel, two cracks ahead of the lower tang, and a chip ahead of the comb. Mechanically excellent. Included bayonet is very good with scattered light pitting.
