A tapered round barrel of 45-1/2" length and 0.79 bore, with centered Ordnance view and proof marks at breech and maker's mark 'IG' to the left; forward of the Ordnance markings is engraved '40 REGT. FT.' which are probably spurious. The 1-1/4" x 7", convex lockplate bears a crowned GR before the cock and GRICE /1759 at its tail, possibly refreshed. The brass mountings are all standard 1756 Land Pattern forms, including a vacant thumbpiece. The figured walnut 3/4 stock has a handrail butt and carved, raised apron around the barrel tang, with an 'L' impressed behind the sideplate, inspection marks behind the trigger guard, setup marks in ramrod channel, and a storekeeper's stamp on the right side of the butt; the left side has "NW 1777" inside rectangular cartouch, all rendered in peck-work. The iron ramrod appears to be original, but the sling swivels are later replacements. CONDITION: The reconverted lock is in good working order, the barrel welded and bushed at vent, the iron parts all a russet finish, while the stock is in good overall condition, with some bruising and very minor replacement of wood splinters along barrel edge; the wood refinished.
