    Description

    US M1803 Flintlock .54 Caliber Rifle Harpers Ferry 1815. Gun is a nicely done reconversion. Barrel smooth and dark with the exception of some light pitting around the touch hole and near the muzzle. Bore now about smooth. Nicely marked and mechanically fine. Brass furniture about perfect with nice age patina. Stock with nice patina with two shallow, very old and worn chips forward of the lock, also a series of hairlines forward of the rear ramrod pipe, minor. There is also a shallow chip at the rear of the hammer. The wood shows honest wear and use with some scattered small dents/nicks. the ramrod is a replacement. A good representative example of this attractive and scarce early US issue rifle.
