FAYETTEVILLE CSA CONFEDERATE NORTH CAROLINA ARMORY RIFLE MUSKET
Original Civil War Fayetteville Confederate Rifle Musket with beautiful overall patina. The Fayetteville Armory was a Confederate Government facility in Fayetteville, NC. The armory was equipped with the machinery that Stonewall Jackson took from the U.S. Armory at Harpers Ferry. Approximately 7,800 were produced. The walnut stock is in great shape with normal wear from service. Has a few small cracks in the buttstock as shown in pics. Has really nice brass hardware with matching patina. The buttplate has the CSA letters and each barrel band has the U inspector stamp. The lockplate is marked C.S.A. / Fayetteville in front of the hammer and 1863 date on the rear. The front of the lockplate was cleaned some time ago but has the original patina on the top of the hammer and lock. The barrel is full length with original rear leaf sight and front pinch sight. Has an 1864 date on the tang and the VP Eagle Proof. Complete with the original ramrod with threaded tip. The mechanics are functional with working action. The hammer only stops on the second click. An easy repair if so desired. Shown with the Dickson, Nelson & C. Rifle in the last photo. Please see all photos and call or write for more information.
