RICHMOND ARMORY MUSKET WITH SPRINGFIELD 1861 LOCKPLATE
I got this gun in on consignment. Please call or write for price!
Original Civil War Confederate Musket that was Repurposed by the Richmond Armory into a 2 Band Carbine. This is a beautiful example of these rare type Confederate Weapons and has an amazing overall displaying patina. The wood stock is in great shape with normal wear from service. One repair near the hammer as shown in pics. Has a brass buttplate and nosecap. Both Barrel bands have an off centered "U" inspectors mark. (I will add pics asap) Has both screw in sling swivels as well as the swivel attached to the trigger guard. The barrel is the correct length with pitting inside the .58 cal bore but does have rifling remaining. Has the long range rear sight as well as the front pinch sight intact. The mechanics are fully functional with perfect action. An overall great rifle that will stand strong in any Civil War Muskets & Carbines Collection.
