Springfield U.S. Model 1863 Type II Rifle (M1864)

.58 caliber, 40" barrel, no S/N. Bright and color case hardened finish, walnut stock. Standard Springfield lock markings, dated 1864 with 1863/64 pattern hammer. Breech dated 1864 as well, with standard proof marks at breech, with eagle on flat bolster. 1864 pattern rear sight, three solid, rounded barrel bands retained by springs. Clear script ESA cartouche on counterpane. Front sight/bayonet lug, sling swivels, straight-shank tulip-head ramrod.


Fine. Metal remains mostly bright with clear markings, some scattered minor impact marks and a few small areas of minor oxidation. Lock and hammer retain much of the case color, which has faded and dulled. Mechanically functional, very good bore with some lightly scattered pinpricking. Stock crisp with scattered handling marks and some minor dings.
