A nice honest piece with appealing evidence of age and period use, this Springfield U. S. Model 1840 remains in excellent all original condition with an appealing deep chocolate natural age patina overall and that untouched but issued and used quality that is so hard to find today. A Maine attic find of some years ago, this honest old .69 caliber smooth bore musket is complete with the exception of its ramrod (easily replaced if you wish) and remains otherwise as issued with its nicely marked and 1841 dated SPRINGFIELD lock The Mod. 1840 musket enjoyed a long run in the military with use in the Mexican War through the American Civil War. The .69 caliber smooth-bore Mod.1840 was the last of the flintlocks and as such was found in considerable supply in both Northern and Southern armories at the outbreak of the Civil War. (Conspiracy enthusiasts find it more than interesting that in the late days prior to secession, then Secretary of War Jefferson Davis was said to have caused the filling of Southern States arsenals with such surplus arms.) With arsenal conversion to the percussion system, the old Mod. 1840 musket saw considerable service by both Union and Confederate troops remaining a common site on the battlefield through 1863 with many remaining in action for the duration of the Civil War. (see: Coates & Thomas Civil War Small Arms) An all too scarce opportunity to acquire a good honest example of one of these U. S. Springfield made and converted Civil War Springfield muskets at a less than prohibitive price. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased!
