1864 Springfield Rifled Musket

A friend has one of these in pieces with no stock. What can the experts here tell me about it? He wants to make a wall-hanger out of it (if we can find a stock).

Thanks for the info Doug.

Cap-The rest consists of the barrel, trigger guard, bands, and miscellaneous screws and little bits.
No major rust or pitting that we could find. At some point, someone soldered bits of copper tube to the barrel to hold the ram rod.
