Original M1835/1840 Springfield Musket, made by D. Nippes from Mill Creek, PA.

The Model 1835/1840 was the last U.S. Martial Flintlock musket and one of the 5,600 made by D. Nippes of Mill Creek, Pennsylvania. As with most of the Nippes muskets, this one was converted to the percussion system. This musket was converted using the third method during the 1840s to early 1850s; the rear of the flintlock barrel was removed and a new breech with bolster was re-threaded onto the barrel.

This example still retains its original smoothbore barrel. The lockplate is stamped "D. NIPPES/US" at the center of the lock, "MILL/CREEK/PA/1843" at the tail of the lock. The barrel does not retain any stamps; however, underneath the barrel is the "**Y" for the conversion on barrel and breech, and "U.S." on the buttplate tang. The left stock flat has "JH" and "WAT" cartouches along with a "J.H." stamp. Fine with minor patination of the armory bright surfaces, some light oil staining, and faint pitting. The trigger has strong original nitre blue on the sides. The re-oiled stock has the typical minor scratches and dings throughout and legible cartouches. Retains original ramrod. Mechanically excellent.
