    Hey gents don't bother I figured it out. It is the French Model 1822 converted to percussion in 1833. The fact that it has its original ramrod is very nice as these seem to be uncommon.


    Cheers

    Hi Gary,

    Spot on with the description, nice original conversion. These are getting a bit hard to come by in such nice condition.

    Cheers,
