Original Confederate Richmond Armory 1862 Short Rifle Musket with the low hump lockplate and 33" barrel. This example was originally purchased by the well known confederate collector and dealer Michael Kramer and still has his tag. He is recognized for his work in the Confederate Rifles & Muskets Book by Murphy and Madaus. This example is one of the first 421 Richmond Rifles that were made up of battlefield salvaged guns as shown in the Confederate Rifle book on pages 600-608. This example could have been carried as is or likely modified post war. It has a really nice overall patina that is matching on all of its parts. The lock has a really nice C.S. and Richmond, VA Maker Mark. The stock is in good shape with usual bumps and bruises and has been shortened to just past the first barrel band with a beautiful Richmond brass buttplate. Has a captured barrel that is full length at 33" and has a small amount of its VP inspector proof marks. The action works but the hammer only clicks in one position. Please see all photos of this Confederate Veteran.
