HALL MODEL 1819 FIRST US MILITARY BREECH LOADER
$4500
Item ID #2085

This is a very nice Hall Model 1819. It retains nearly all the original lacquer finish on the metal surfaces. The wood is also excellent and shows little use. Bore in the 33" .52 caliber barrel is bright and shiny. It shows little if any use. It rates an easy nine on a one to ten scale. Action is tight and smooth. It works perfectly. This is the first US military breech loader. It is also the first gun to have completely interchangeable parts. Markings are complete and original. It is dated 1838. You will like this piece. Finding a better one could prove to be difficult.
