Description:

Only an estimated 1,700 of these rifles were manufactured in Richmond around 1812-1821. This rifle has an earlier First Model lock marked "RICHMOND/1806" at the tail and "VIRGINIA/Manufactory" at the center. The barrel has seven-groove rifling, dovetailed blade and notch sights, and "14th VA Regt" marked on top at the breech. The furniture is all brass.

Rating Definition:

Very good as reconverted to flintlock configuration with a mix of dark brown patina and applied brown finish on the lock and barrel, mild overall wear including some pitting, and attractive aged patina on the brass. The refinished stock is also very good and has some faint cracks and small chips, some gaps around the lock, filler at the front of the lock, and mild dings and scratches. The lock need some work.
