    Any opinions as to the parentage of this drum affixed to a Harpers Ferry lock dated 1822?

    Your "Drum" is a common civilian type alteration to percussion, usually done by local gunsmiths.

    Rest of the musket is full length. What's a "standard"* Confederate drum look like?

    There is no "standard" Confederate drum.
