Excellent condition for a used musket. Barrel and furniture are in good shape. However, there are some chips out of the stock near the butt plate and the end of the tang. Probably caused by being dropped or knocked over. The funcitonality of the musket is not affected and the areas could be filled if desired. The price reflects the damage to the stock.
A bit less than 25,000 smoothbore 1842's were rifled and about half of those were equipped with the long range sight as is represented on this particular gun. The 1842 was used throughout the Civil War and rifled versions are under represented in the reenacting hobby.
