RichmondLockplate.jpg (238359 bytes) Richmond Rifle Musket.  This Type I high hump is an early Harpers Ferry parts gun and has been vetted by a host of judges at Mansfield and Franklin.  It has a Harpers Ferry stock and includes a nice, Confederate canvas sling.  Guaranteed Confederate.  I bought it right and can pass the savings on to you.   $ 6,500
m1861_06.jpg (19628 bytes) Model 1861 Springfield.  This is a complete and original rifle musket with an 1862 dated lockplate, correct swelled ramrod, two strong cartouches and a lot of character.  This model was the workhorse of the early Civil War and this one saw campaigning but was carefully preserved: the normal pitting around the nipple and breech areas were cleaned long ago.  The bore is poor.  An excellent display example (not a shooter) of the most reliable and well thought of longarm of the War. $ 1800
M1840Pomeroy.jpg (23188 bytes) Model 1840 Pomeroy Rifled Musket Conversion.  .69 caliber smoothbore musket with 1850's "Belgian" conversion, and 1844 dated lockplate and 1840 dated breech.  Rifled and long-range sited, these were one of the few American firearms that the .69 cal. Minié ball was designed for.  In excellent out-of-the-attic condition with extra-sharp wood and cartouches.  There is pitting from sustained firing around the nipple.  An authentic and completely original longarm in very good condition.  These were in State arsenals when the War broke out and saw great service through most of the War.  $ 1100
Triplett&Scott.jpg (18913 bytes) Triplett & Scott carbine.  Serial number 984.  .50 cal. with unique, swivel breech action.  Marked “Kentucky” on left side of the receiver.  In  very good condition with a very good bore, crisp action, very good markings and good wood.  There is an old 7” crack along the left butt stock following the spring assisted loading tube concealed in the stock (not uncommon for these guns).  The sling swivel at the rear of the butt stock is missing.  A hard-to-find American Civil War era firearm of which only 5,000 were produced. $ 1500
JoslynArmy.jpg (106842 bytes) Joslyn Army Revolver.  This is a beautiful example of a rare (only 3,000 made) US contract revolver.  The action works flawlessly and the metal and wood are very good plus (the original owner carved some symbols on the upper grip).    $ 4,000
StarrArmy01.jpg (23314 bytes) Starr 1863 Single Action Army.  This is a nice, honest, brown example of Starr's best model.  Action works flawlessly and bore is good.  This gun was never abused but hasn't been cleaned in many years.  A very nice example priced much less than you'd expect for this condition. $ 950
SmithWessonOwens2.jpg (1077864 bytes) Smith & Wesson Model 2.  Civil War serial No. 22,lXX.  .32 cal. cartridge revolver with 6" barrel, blue finished with rosewood grips.  In overall very good condition..  Action is crisp and barrel and 1855-59-60 patent markings sharp.   $ 850
SWIDdRight.jpg (42546 bytes) Smith & Wesson Model 2.  Civil War serial No. 20,269.  .32 cal. cartridge, ID'd to a Captain Samuel White of the 172nd Ohio (a collection of his company paperwork and his wallet is included).  In overall very good condition.  Action is crisp and barrel and 1855-59-60 patent markings sharp.  Includes its original holster. $ HOLD
RemingtonArmy2016a.jpg (23110 bytes) Remington New Model Army.  Very nice, inspected revolver that was arguably superior to the .44 Colt.  Action works perfectly.   $ 1,100
Smith&Wesson_Model_2_46622.jpg (20634 bytes) Smith & Wesson Model 2.  Serial No. 46622.  .32 cal. with 6" barrel, blue finished with rosewood grips.  In overall very good condition with approximately 60% original finish.  Action is crisp and barrel and 1855-59-60 patent markings sharp.   $ 800
Smith&Wesson_Model_2_40552.jpg (20891 bytes) Smith & Wesson Model 2. Serial No. 40552.  .32 cal. with 6" barrel, blue finished with rosewood grips.  In overall very good condition with approximately 30% original finish.  Action is crisp and barrel and 1855-59-60 patent markings sharp. $ 600
ColtPocket.jpg (1203377 bytes) Colt Model 1849 Pocket. .31 caliber percussion revolver manufactured in the early 1850's (visible numbers are all matching).  This is a very nice example, but the action does not advance the cylinder.  Priced to sell. $ 400
Colt_Army_103026.jpg (21592 bytes) Colt Model 1860 Army. .44 caliber regulation percussion revolver manufactured in the first half of 1863 (serial no. 103026, visible numbers are all matching).  This is a gun for the collector who enjoys Period artifacts that actually saw campaigning but were never abused.  Action is tight and rifling is strong. $ 1,600
ColtArmyOwnes.jpg (51614 bytes) Colt Model 1860 Army. .44 caliber regulation percussion revolver manufactured in January of 1865 (serial no. 153809, visible numbers are all matching).  Four-screw, cut for shoulder stock.  Grips are gorgeous.  The metal shows a lot of use and was cleaned some years ago.  The cylinder does not advance all the way around without hanging up.  This last issue makes me price this otherwise nice gun really low.  Fix the timing and double its value. $ 800
Navy_62.jpg (53069 bytes) Colt Model 1851 Navy.  Serial number 128210 (all visible matching) indicates a fall 1862 manufacturing date on this nice Navy.  It has tons of cylinder scene and still has its safety teats.  The metal shows no pitting, but has numerous use dings.  The action works flawlessly.   $ 1,800
Colt Navy 13410.jpg (19388 bytes) Colt Model 1851 Navy.  Early, 1852-dated small guard serial number 13410 (all matching including wedge).  .36 caliber percussion revolver with good cylinder scene and a lot of the original silver on the trigger guard and back strap.  This gun was around well before the War, saw a lot of good use, and was well treated.  On hold until its stint in a museum display ends. $ HOLD
