P53 ENFIELD TOWER 2 BAND PERCUSSION RIFLE MUSKET 1861
Original Civil War Enfield P53 Tower 2 Band Percussion Musket with very desirable 1861 Production Date. This gun had a period repair with a very cool old brass plate. It had become loose over the years so I had it professionally restored. The stock is other wise in great shape with normal wear from service and now very solid. There is also a replacement hammer that looks to have been done at the time of the period repair. Matches the guns patina perfectly. Possible Confederate Repair? The barrel is full length with the correct markings for US Import ("25" "25" for .577 caliber) and has decent rifling. The original long range rear and front sight are intact. Also has the original bayonet lug. The mechanics are fully functional with working action. The brass trigger guard and buttplate have a nice aged patina. Has the correct Nipple Protector, Barrel Tompion and an aged ramrod. Please see all photos and call or write for payment options.
