This musket is in exceptional condition. Since these pictures were taken, I
disassembled the rifle and inspected it and found it very clean throughout.
While I was at it I cleaned all the dried oil off the metal with mineral
spirits. The old oil shows up in the photos as brown areas on the metal. So now
the rifle looks even better.
The metal is all still bright and if it was ever cleaned in the past it was done
very lightly. The barrel has crisp markings and the bore is excellent. The face
of the beech plug is still bright. The lock is in excellent condition inside and
out. The wood has the usual very minor dings from handling over the years but
The sling is a very nice reproduction and comes with the gun. The bayonet is
available separately and is the correct one for this rifle having the marking
for "Collins & Co.".
The pictures will tell you more.
