TRYON M1841 MISSISSIPPI RIFLE MUSKET PHILADELPHIA, PA 1847
Original Civil War Tryon M1841 Mississippi Contract Rifle Musket with an overall nice patina and beautiful brass hardware. The stock is in good shape with usual bumps and bruises from service with a few cracks and one repaired section in front of the lock and some wood filler near the hammer from percussion fire. The Lockplate is maker marked Tryon and Phialdelphia, PA with the 1847 production date. The action does work but only clicks in the back position. Hammer has a small amount of modification. Barrel is full length with a tombstone style rear sight as well as its front sight intact. Buttplate has the "US" stamp. Great price on a very popular weapon that saw service in the Mexican & Civil War. Please see all photos.
