Model 1816 U.S. Flintlock Rifle w/ Bayonet,
Type II, W.L. Evans, Valley Forge, 1826
.62-Caliber, 42-Inch Barrel

Standard lock marking (misspelled by die maker) “W.L. EVENS” above American eagle above “V. Forge”; the date, “1826” stamped vertically behind hammer. Barrel marked, left side at breech with “P” and eagle. Walnut stock with low-comb displays old color, iron mountings and barrel finished brown (thinning, about gone); lockplate is flat/beveled…rear section rounded (nary any case color); brass flashpan. Sling swivel mounted to bow of trigger guard. Minor imperfections commensurate with age and use include a tight and short grain fissure with a very small bit of wood loss at top of channel located several inches behind first barrel band…not distracting. There is a small “V” shape grain fissure with tiny old wood loss tight to buttplate tang, lock side. Pitting in touch-hole area. These imperfections are minor and are mentioned as full disclosure.
