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
M1863_Springfield.jpg (22309 bytes) Model 1863 Springfield.  U.S. arsenal made rifle musket in very good condition and offered with the correct bayonet.  An improvement on the M1861, these were made in similar quantities to its predecessor at the Springfield armory. $ 1400
Bridesburg01.jpg (14419 bytes) Bridesburg Model 1861 Rifle Musket.  .58 cal. percussion, with full-length barrel and stock (wood is in overall very good condition).  Action is crisp.  The metal was cleaned some time ago and there is some battle-fire pitting around the M1863 style bolster.  This gun is complete, all original and was absolutely carried in the War..   $ 1500
P53 Enfield Rifle Musket.  When I got this, it was under so much grime I couldn't tell what I had.  After careful, non-destructive cleaning, I can say that this was a real find.  This three-band has a long list of Confederate-use characteristics; it saw heavy service yet was deemed worthy of arsenal reworking.  It show loads of American arsenal rework marks (22's and XXII's mark the first rework), W. Tranter, J. Bourne and Ezra Millward contractor marks, 25-25 (.577) breech markings and a completely shot-out bore (no rifling left).  It bears no CS import marks, but is an example that sings Dixie without the added cost. $ 1600
Model 1816 Harpers Ferry Percussion Conversion.  .69 caliber smoothbore musket with 1850's "Belgian" conversion and 1837 dated lockplate and breech.  This musket has never been messed with and in very good to excellent uncleaned 'attic' condition.  Wood edges are sharp.  There is pitting from sustained firing around the nipple.  An authentic and complexly original in very good condition.  These were in State arsenals when the War broke out and saw great service through most of the War.   $ 1200
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
M1816Nippes.jpg (22619 bytes) Model 1816 Nippes Percussion Conversion Musket.  .69 caliber smoothbore musket with 1850's "Belgian" conversion and 1840 dated lockplate.  Wood is original and unsanded with sharp edges.  The breech and lockplate have been cleaned, otherwise the metal is in very good condition.  These were in State arsenals when the War broke out and saw great service through most of the War.  An authentic and completely original in very good condition. $ HOLD
M1816NStarr.jpg (22067 bytes) Model 1816 N. Starr Percussion Conversion Musket.  This is as fine as you will find.  This 1833 dated longarm has beautiful metal with sharp markings throughout.  The wood is excellent with sharp edges (never sanded) and a sharp, deep cartouche.  You seldom see M1816's or even M1840's this good and a Nathan Starr is the highest valued of the Northern makers.    $ 1500
Garabaldi.jpg (21943 bytes) Garabaldi Short Rifle.  This imported arm is one of the many variations of the  Austrian M1842/M1849, and commonly called the Garabaldi.  It is the mammoth 71 caliber and is rifled (even though it lacks a rear site).  The barrel is a scant 27” long (more like a Jaeger) and the lockplate and breech are both marked 142.  The bolster conversion is the Austrian Lorenze style.  It is in overall good condition and the action is tight.  The initials E. I. S are carved into the left side of butt.  These desperation arms were imported to both the  Union and Confederacy in 1862.  $ 800
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
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.   $ 1,100
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. $ 900
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, 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
ColtArmy 5618.jpg (20059 bytes) Colt Model 1860 Army.  This early 1861 dated (#5618) Army purchased and shipped to a private concern during the pre-war frenzy.  Only the barrel was inspected with a 'W' and the grips show no cartouche.  All matching serial numbers, even gray patina, good (slightly loose) action, good markings and good grips.  A nice example that may well have gone South before they stopped such shipments. $ 2,400
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.  $ 2,400
