<<  Where were the US Model 1840's manufactured? Would they have come from
either the Springfield or Harper's Ferry armories, or possibly from
elsewhere?  >>

Harpers Ferry only made the pattern or "model" pieces.  It didn't make any production pieces.  Manufacture was at Springfield, with some limited contract production by D. Nippes, and L. Pomeroy.
