The cartouches for the Harper's Ferry armory are all correct. The wood is in good condition, and it looks like this is all the original hardware. A very nice gun.

  • Fact 3: Secretary of War Henry Dearborn published a paper in 1803 advocating short-barreled rifles, and eventually this paper led to the production of the Harper's Ferry 1803 and other rifles in West Virginia.
