up for sale is a wonderful piece of early american history and civil war history. It is an 1823 Springfield flintlock, that was converted into a caplock for use in the civil war. I was told, when I bought it, that it was a "dropped" recovery. Now this gun is sturdy, but does have its drawbacks. The stock is sturdy, but is thin in places, and has some cracking. The gun is also missing the ram rod. The trigger and hammer work, but could use some cleaning and lubrication in order for it to function more effectively. The barrel, plate, and the fittings and screws are in good condition. Overall the gun is in fair condition, could use some TLC from an expert, or worst case would be great for parts or an amazing display piece. Willing to do trades, or sell it straight up. I mostly like antique cartridge guns.
