Totally un-marked as to maker yet clearly the distinct work and unique design of Milton, Pennsylvania gunsmith, Samuel Morrison Sr. (1826 - 1844) The forged lockplate, (measuring approximately 5 inches long X 1 inch wide) forged hammer and side-hammer design with unusual external mainspring, sear spring and sear, will satisfy the knowledgeable Upper Susquehanna long rifle collector of the lock's origin. Best described by our photo illustrations, the lock remains complete and would likely be functional with application of a little gun oil. We leave that decision to the new owner preferring to offer the piece here pure and as found with an untouched rich age patina. A desirable example of the work of Samuel Morrison, by itself, hopefully someone will have one of these rare long rifles in need of an original lock. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! :COLOR=#0000FF>
