Composite U.S. US Model 1861 Springfield Rifle Mukset

.58 caliber, 40" barrel, no S/N. Bright finish, walnut stock. Standard Springfield lock markings, dated 1862 at tail. Barrel re-dated to match, large VP inspection at left angled breech flat without Eaglehead, not typical of Springfield barrels. Barrel appears to have been lined, 1861 pattern rear sight with more modern replaced leaves, front sight replaced. Stock with two weak non-Springfield cartouches. Retains sling swivels and swelled shank tulip-head ramrod.


Good as rebuilt. Metal cleaned and polished with scattered oxidation and discoloration. Lock mechanically functional, relined bore about fine. Stock sanded with mediocre wood to metal fit, a  nominally 3" section of wood repaired between the hammer and breech plug tang and showing moderate burn out and some wood loss in that area as well. 

Estimate: $600 - $900
Price Realized Including Buyer's Premium
