Original Civil War Springfield M1855 Rifled Musket with very desirable pre war 1859 production date. The mechanics are fully functional with very nice action. The stock is in great shape with very little wear from service and has an inspector cartouche. Has US Springfield on the front of the lock and the 1859 date on the back. The Closure door to the Maynard Tape Primer System has the Eagle with shield. Functions normal and closes secure. Barrel is full length with lots of rifling remaining and 1859 date ( I will add pics asap). Has the original front pinch sight and a partial rear long range sight. Has the VP Eagle Inspector Proofs. Comes complete with the correct style tulip ramrod with threads. All three barrel bands have the U inspector proofs. The buttplate is marked with US and has some company info stamped as well. A 1st class example of this beautiful model Springfield. Will make a great addition to any Civil War Collection. Please see all photos.
