MODEL 1803 HARPERS FERRY RIFLE LOCK – DATED 1806 – RARE COMPLETE LOCK IN VERY GOOD CONDITION – MECHANICALLY SOUND:  This is a very clean and complete lock for the US Model 1803 Harpers Ferry Rifle.  The lock plate retains the fully legible armory name and date - 1806, and a lightly struck federal eagle below which the faint “US” is still visible.  The inspector’s name is adjacent to the eagle, partially covered as is normally the case, with the frizzen spring.   

The lock is complete, fully functional, and has a very crisp action.  The lock plate, hammer, and frizzen are overall smooth with no significant pitting.  There is some pitting to the internal surfaces, but nothing which affects the integrity or function of the lock.   

An excellent replacement lock to complete your rifle, or an early National Armory relic to display in its own right, this is very rare Model 1803 Rifle major component, this is a rare opportunity to purchase an early US Armory lock.   (0111)  $1250
