We are offering for sale an antique Musket chambered in .66 caliber (it’s hard to tell with these old muskets). This rifle has brass plaque inset in the top of the octagon barrel that reads “M. Preston 1825” dating this rifle to at least the early part of the 19th century.
36 ½” octagon barrel is good with normal wear for a rifle this age. Smooth bore is generally clean. Barrel has a shaved down brass blade front sight and unique dual brass rear flip sights. Lockplate reads “Warranted” with some light engraving present. Hammer cocks back, holds , and fires forward with good force when the trigger is squeezed. The stock is good; Judging by the ramrod fittings, this was once a full stock that was cut down at some point, most likely to save weight. The current form of the stock is good, however it has plenty of small closed cracks, some pinned with finish nails. Gun has brass ramrod fittings, trigger guard, side plate, crescent butt plate and patch box cover.
THIS RIFLE HAS AMAZING CHARACTER!!!
Antique ships directly to buyer.
