.56 caliber, 17.37" barrel, no S/N. Of military type with a plain octagonal barrel which appears to be unmarked of Shul type. Lockplate with beveled sides and single-stud wheel. Pan cover appears to be under tension. Dog and dog spring appear to period associations. The top jaw terminated with an Augsburg pine cone. The fruitwood full stock is plain, but of good form. Steel buttcap is original to the gun, the triggerguard with finger rests appears to be an old association, though with an original trigger. Cock is held with two screws and odd steel lanyard ring; possibly a later addition.
Barrel is mostly smooth with some scattered old pitting . Lock is very good with no pitting and possibly some original polish. Dog and dog spring are pitted and not in same condition as the lock. Stock is in good condition with the exception of a 3" sliver missing from left side. Color is excellent. Stock retains original steel forend cap and steel ramrod pipe. Internals show evidence of prior repair on mainspring with an additional broken chain.
