Sorry bad pics but its from an older gentleman. Can anyone possibly identify this regardless of bad pictures? Would mean a lot to him to know what it is.

Without see the lockplate, it could be a 1841. It has been sporterised. (cutdown)

I'm thinking a cutdown 1842. The 1841 would have sights, but even if they were removed, you'd still see the dovetails cut into the barrel for the rear sight. Better pics would help, including the lockplate.

I just cannot fathom cutting those firearms down to sporterize them.

Like many people, even today, I guess they didn’t think about it, and just did what was necessary at the time to get by.
