Below are George Moller's Merrill-related firearms that are part of the September 2021 Rock Island Auction Company auction.  I have no idea if he had sold any Merrills prior to his passing in March.  He wrote several books on antique firearms like those Merrill manufactured and converted.  Found a nice list of his books at thriftbooks online:


Massachusetts Military Shoulder Arms, 1784-1877

American Military Shoulder Arms : Flintlock Alterations and Muzzleloading Percussion Shoulder Arms, 1840-1865

American Military Shoulder Arms Vol. I : Colonial and Revolutionary War Arms
