The lock on this musket is marked B. Flagg & Co.-Milbury/1849 .  The barrel has been cut down to 24" in it's period of use.  The carbine exhibits typical Indian hard use and has a Circle in the Star cut into it's rt. butt stock.This was done in it's period of use and exhibits all the appropriate wear and cracking as the rest of the stock. Robert Smith did some great research in the mid 90's on these Warrior Society guns. This was published in Man at Arms magazine in either 1995 or 1996.  He felt that these Cheyenne and Sioux  Warrior Society's  participated in the Battle of the Little Big Horn.  A very desirable Indian gun.
