The Model 1819 Hall is a historically significant whereas it was the first military breech
loading firearm issued in large numbers anywhere in the world and the first firearm
manufactured with totally interchangeable parts. It took Hall five years to assemble the
proper tools and machinery to produce the rifles; in 1826, a government commission
disassembled 100 Hall rifles, mixed up the parts, and re-assembled them on newly
received stocks with no reported problems confirming Hall's success.

Made by Harpers Ferry Armory, under John H. Hall’s patent. Rifling extended to
within 1.5-inch of muzzle facilitating muzzle-loading if necessary. Single shot
breechloader; breechblock pivots upward for loading. All metal parts gun-metal gray
with speckling. The action is smooth, tight, and dependable. The stock is excellent, one
imperfection being a “U” shape shrinkage fissure behind the block…top of stock.
Stamped in the underside of stock is the name “R. Day”, likely the name of an inspector.
It is not known if the mark was applied at Harpers Ferry of during a state inspection.
According to Peter Schmidt, author of Hall’s Military Breechloaders; only a few
specimens are known to display the mark. (page 45)
