What You Need to Know: West Mercia Q&A on Firearms Licensing
News Dealer & Industry News
Being brass mounted and with a checkered stock this rifle conforms to the basic pattern specification of one of only two documented batchs of Confederate purchased and issued Kerr rifles.
In as found 'sleeper' condition, the only attention that this rifle has received is carefull cleaning and oiling of the bore. The windage adjustable fore sight is missing, but the dovetail mount is present and sound. The bronze ramrod tip is also absent, but the threads to receive it are sharp and clean.
Very hard to find and difficult to better. Additional pictures and a quote for overseas carrige, if required supplied on request.
A Pattern 1842 Lovells musket fully ordnance marked, with the butt tang inscribed to the 97th foot. In very nice collectors condition, strong springs to the lock, the only negative elements being the inch of barrel that has been removed from the muzzle, the yellowing varnish that has been applied to the lock and barrel, a chip from the toe of the stock and the usual asbsence of the Lovells bayonet catch.
Regimentally marked P42s are very rare, this one possibly seeing service in the early stages of the Crimean War.

The barrel and stock of a Altered Pattern P42 rifled musket. The barrel is fully ordnance marked and retains its elevator rearsigt. Rifled with 3 groves, the bore is bright and shiny with the lands and groves clean and sharp.
A very rare piece, which would make a great project.
