Default Springfield 1852

Have a Springfield with a date of 1852 stamped on it. It was my great great great grandfathers civil war gun, at least that's what has been passed down. I have been looking online and can't seem to find any just like it, most seem to have the stock, forearm that goes further down the barrel. I know it's not in great shape but plan on redoing it and using it as a display in the house. If anyone knows more please share.

Its an 1842 pattern Springfield musket manufactured in 1852. .69 caliber smoothbore. The stock was cut down to be used as a shotgun after the war.

That's kind of what I figured it was but knew the stock was throwing it off for me.
