This used M1861 was fully defarbed by its former owner. It features some re-shaping of the stock, custom taper pins in the swivels, period correct inspector's cartouches and a correctly stamped barrel.
The stock is in great shape with a a few minor handling marks and a few cosmetic chips missing from lock mortise (see photo). A linseed oil finish was applied to the stock which gives the wood a great satin luster.
The lock holds solid on both full and half cock.
The barrel has some light surface rust externally, but the bore is great condition with only some minor surface rust at the muzzle.
This musket would be a great choice for any reenactor who wants to have a historically accurate musket without having to spend over $1000
