Re: Help Identifying a Parker Warranted
That general type of gun dates from around 1850, but some parts, like the hammer, trigger and trigger guard look more modern so someone may have tried to repair or "restore" that gun in relatively recent years. The rear sight is obviously from a modern rifle. As to the type of lock when it was made, I think the lock is probably original and not converted from a flintlock, if that is what you meant.
Besides the amateurish attempts at "repair/restoration, the gun is in poor condition. Value would be a couple of hundred dollars at best.
