A flintlock, rifled carbine by Henry Nock, 46-1/2" overall, with a rebrowned twist, two-stage barrel of 30" length with octagonal breech engraved “H. NOCK / PATENT”; the musket bore (0.75 caliber) is smooth-bored for the first 4" from the muzzle, then cut with seven-groove rifling making three-quarters of a turn for the remainder; fixed notch rear sight with teardrop-shaped base of German silver, with bayonet lug foresight. The Nock patent, enclosed, screwless lock is 4-3/4" long and has a brass flashguard affixed to the lock on each side of the pan, under which is engraved “H. NOCK” in serifed, block letters. The brass mountings include Nock/New Model-type buttplate (with ‘70’ engraved across its tang) and nosecap, trigger guard, and two ramrod pipes. The walnut 3/4 stock has a wide, full-length ramrod channel with ‘W.T’ stamped into it between trigger guard and flared middle pipe and ‘H C [?]’ in the wood opposite the lock. The iron ramrod has a large button tip, pronounced bulbous swell and then tapering down its length and ending with a brazed tube end with internal threading. The sling swivels appear original to the carbine. CONDITION: 20-30% of the original bluing remains on the barrel tang and lock; the stock with dings, bruises and very slight insect damage on the left side of butt, a stabilized crack in the butt and another on the left side of forestock along barrel edge, running 2-1/2" up from the breech along the barrel edge; lock in good working order.
