Original Pre Civil War Whitney M1841 Mississippi Rifle in Relic Condition. The barrel is full length with nice rifling and has the original long range sight as well as the small brass front sight. The lock is marked US / Whitney on the front of the plate and N. Haven 1853(?) on the rear. The mechanics are fully functional with good working action. The brass furniture has a beautiful matching patina and the buttplate is marked with US. The walnut stock has two military cartouche stamps but is completely worn out from service and has a break behind the lockplate. Also has lots of wood loss from a knife or hatchet on one side. The ramrod is MIA. This gun is worth what I'm asking in parts but would love for it to stay together and preserved as is. Will make someone a great wall hanger without breaking the bank on a very rare and popular gun. Please see all photos.
