Description  

Civil War Model 1861 Rifle-Musket by Springfield Armory. A .58 caliber musket with a standard 40″ barrel with a very good bore secured by three bands. The lockplate and breech are both dated “1862.” The left side of the stock has a fine condition “ESA” inspector’s cartouche and a second cartouche that is lightly rubbed and hard to read. All of the metal has been cleaned and has fine abrasive scratches with some scattered fine pitting. The arsenal markings on the breech are in very good condition and those in the lockplate are in excellent condition. The stock has some added oil finish but has not been sanded and has good edges. There is a short hairline age crack behind the lock recess that is unobtrusive. The stock overall is in fine condition with relatively few handling marks. The Springfield was the most widely used US Army weapon during the Civil War, favored for its range, accuracy, and reliability. Given their status as an iconic Civil War weapon, Springfield rifles are of the utmost desirability. Oversized.
