Original Civil War Springfield M1855 .58 cal Rifle Musket with a very desirable pre war 1859 Production Date. The gun is in beautiful condition with a very nice overall patina. The stock is in great shape with very minimal bumps and bruises from service. There is some wear on the underside where the ramrod channel is. The Lock is fully functional and clicks in both positions with nice crisp action. Has the U.S. Springfield Maker Mark to the right of the hammer and the 1859 date on the rear. The full length barrel has really nice rifling remaining and the proper Government inspector VP Proofs. The Buttplate is marked "US" and has some Company info stamped in it. The ramrod is an original correct style with the swell and threads on the end. It has the pinched front sight as well as the long range rear sight but one of its leafs are MIA. Just a beautiful example that will be hard to upgrade. Please see all photos and call if I can assist you in any way.
