The barrel should have some marking denoting manufactures name and caliber

I also think this was of Austrian origin shipped to the Southern Army during the Civil War.

303Tom, I am going to call this one the real deal. I have seen many of the Austrian cap locks still being used to shoot musket competition. A friend of mine won the Texas State competition with an as issued Lorenz rifled musket in 2007. An orginal 1842 Austrian Carbine of that vintage and condition sells for around $1,200 bucks.
I would also add that the Confederacy cut down piles of the muskets for their Calvary units. These modified muskets bring top prices as well.
