Picked up this Parker-Hale 1861 Musketoon SN#52xx this morning looking sad. The stock had no finish and the wood was dry. Glass bedded, it had some epoxy film smeared here and there, the metal was dry with the bore looking dirty. A couple hours spent working some oil into stock scrubbing the bore (OK ), oiling up the metal work and lock gave me a pretty nice little rifle. It appears to be an ex-NSSA rifle with the glass bedding and front sight blade modified for competition so I'm hoping it turns out to be a good shooter.
