Description Technical Specs
M1822/1828 Harpers Ferry Smoothbore Musket, dated 1836

This 69. caliber musket is essentially the model 1816 with small amounts of modification designs made by the U.S. Government during the period years of 1822 & 1828. The example shown here was produced at the Harpers Ferry Armory in the year 1836. It was originally manufactured as a flintlock weapon and later converted to a percussion firing system using a curved cone bolster seat that was forged directly onto the breech. The barrel surface does show signs of a medium to heavy grade form of pitting in and around the breech and touch hole area, but diminishes significantly along the length of the barrel. The ramrod is original to this weapon with the button head designed for the round ball and threading at the opposite end for the ball pull and worm. Barrel proof marks and date stamp have been completely obscured by pitting. Lockplate stamps are deep and easily readable. The walnut stock is solid and in excellent condition, considering its age with inspector marks "AR/V" (Adam Rhulman) and "V/JAS" (John A. Schaeffer). There are scratches and some surface nicks, but no cracks to the wrist area. A wonderful pre-war musket that likely saw extensive use during the American Civil War.
