    For Sale: M1816 pattern Pomeroy contract musket, Belgian conversion, dated 1838 with bayonet

    Nice 1816 Pomeroy dated 1838, Belgian conversion to percussion. I bought this a decade ago with the intent to use at living history events but always left it in the safe. Aside from occasional swabbing the bore and occasionally wiping some linseed oil on the stock, I never used it. Pics are from my iPhone and hope they are decent. this is somewhat of a photo barrage below. Happy to send others upon request. All the metal is in great condition. The screws are not dog-eared. Proofs are clear and clean. The bore is beautiful. The butt-plate has minimal wear. What stands out is the stock is proud on all edges and only shows minimal dings here and there, verses abuse, and while the lock has some evidence of a previous owners cleaning, the entire musket is tight; the bands, fit and finish, etc. For a 180 year old firearm, it is in excellent condition. The only thing I did was have the Rifle Shoppe install a weaker mainspring. It had the original flintlock spring that was very heavy. I had intended to use this musket during living history events or perhaps fire it, but I didn't need to whack the living hell out of the cone. I still have the original mainspring. Meanwhile, I never even used the musket. Also includes an excellent condition bayonet. I may regret selling this, but I have my M1840 Pomeroy conversion to satisfy any needs, so this one needs to find a home with someone who might do more with it than I have in a decade.

    $1,500 plus shipping CONUS for musket, bayonet, and sling. Payment by USPS money orders preferred, but will take any form of check (personal, bank, cashiers, etc). Shipping by UPS Ground insured.

    Happy to try and answer any question.

    Thanks for looking!

    Ben
