This standard Model 1803 features a heavy two stage rifled barrel. There is an eagle head with a "P" and another indistinct proof stamped on the left side of the breech. The flat lockplate has an eagle with a shield on its breast stamped in the center and is stamped "HARPERS/FERRY/1814" at the tail. Standard brass Model 1803 furniture and double set triggers. There is a brass two piece patch box on the front, with an inscribed "3" on the finial along with the initials "MD" formed using a series of dots. The walnut halfstock has a brass band on the forend. Complete with its original iron ramrod. CONDITION: Barrel retains a mostly heavy brown patina with some added brown finish towards the breech. Markings show some wear. Lock is a good professional reconversion and retains a grey finish and functions well. Part of the markings at the tail are worn. Brass furniture retains a mustard patina with some light wear and minor marks from use. Stock shows some minor hairline cracks and scattered marks. A small piece of wood is replaced on the right side around the barrel key. There is still a partially visible "V/JS" for inspector James Stubblefield and a "V" and "MB" stamped behind it. It appears the rifling has been refreshed. A nice example of a historic War of 1812 rifle.
