Percussion cap rifle

If you check the side of the rifle you can clearly read 'Springfield 1847' making it (surprise, surprise...) a Springfield Model 1847 Musketoon. It's in perfect condition so it's probably a replica - PeeWee055 (talk) 03:35, 24 April 2015 (EDT)

I'm pretty sure that the date stamped on the lock is just indicative of what year that particular rifle was manufactured rather than what pattern it is. For example, here is one stamped 1945, and here another stamped 1953. As for what these particular guns are, I am pretty sure they are just standard rifles rather than musketoons, as in the final image you can see that the rifle has three barrel bands (rather than the two of the musketoons). --commando552 (talk) 13:55, 24 April 2015 (EDT)
Good points C552 (as usual), missed the the barrel bands. Guess it's indeed the Model 1842 musket with the stamping indicating the year of manufacture, like an AK-47 ("1947") with e.g. 1965 production markings. By the way, rather than 1945/1953 your links mention 1845/1853. Finally, I am no expert at all with these muskets so I rest my case with any expert, PeeWee055 (talk) 15:34, 24 April 2015 (EDT)
I simply mistyped that, for some reason my tablet keeps wanting to autocorrect those dates to 19 rather than 18 by default. I believe the way that it works is that the lock would be common to different patterns of rifles and carbines and they would not be marked with anything specific to the pattern, just the year in which that particular lock was manufactured, the armoury that made it, and a US eagle.--commando552 (talk) 15:45, 24 April 2015 (EDT)
