US Harpers Ferry model 1819 Hall rifle altered to percussion dated 1832. .52 caliber, 32 5/8 inch long rifled barrel with 16 grooves having the normal counter bored muzzle. Receiver is marked in five lines “J.H. HALL/H.FERRY/US/1832”. The rifle has been altered to percussion by the federal method of insetting a new cone into the original flash hole and milling off the forward part of the receiver where the frizzen pivots and leaving the back of the fence intact to act as a flash shield. The barrel and mountings retain all of the original brown finish with just very slight wear at the muzzle where a bayonet has been taken on and off. The ramrod is original and the bore is fine. The Black Walnut stock is proper for this year of manufacture with barrel bands retained with cross pins.

 

All of the iron metal work retains 100% of the original brown lacquer finish with some edges that have had some brown worn off. The stock is perfect with only a few minor handling marks, but nothing that detracts from this specimen being almost new. PROVENANCE: Robert Howard Estate Collection. Consignors notes regarding above, and that the Model 1819 converted to percussion was described in the June 1985 GUN REPORT.
