Swedish m/1845-ish musket? (Muzzleloading)

Nice musket, Fabian23.
Browsing Josef Alm's book there are two main candidates - the M1840 and M1845. There is also an M1845 for cadets. Sligthly smaller/more slender version of the previous mentioned (124,5 cm overall length, 3 Kg weight, 16mm bore). Do you have any measures at hand?

PS! The tumbler looks a bit crudely made, the mainspring almost slipping off. A replacement part made by the local blacksmith and there was no room for the bridle? Or perhaps the bridle broke as well as the old tumbler?

Best når det smeller!
