Civil War Weapons

WP 1. Confederate 2nd Model Kenansville NC. Cavalry Saber.

Exceptional example of this desirable North Carolina produced saber with its original scabbard. Very high quality with original leather grip and brass wire wrap. Untouched and matching bronze patina on the scabbard mounts, throat and guard. Small casting flaw on one of the ribs. Note “C.S.” neatly engraved on the guard. Blade is smooth with a darkening plum/gray patina. No nicks. Scabbard condition matches the saber. Dent free and 80% of its original russet brown paint intact.



WP 2. P-56 Sergeants Two Band Rifle by Potts & Hunt, London .577 Cal.

Good looking iron mounted Enfield Rifle from a British Furnisher that provided many such arms to the Confederacy. No Confederate markings visible, but also no markings to rule out Confederate use. Very good condition with smooth metal surfaces finished semi bright. Lock function is mechanically sound. Bore is well defined. Ramrod  appears to have been cut down as the end is not threaded. Stock has a very nice appearance with only minor service wear. Note original nipple protector and chain.

$1795.00 HOLD B.B.


WP 3. US M-1840 Flintlock Contract Musket by “D. NIPPES”, Dated 1843 .69 Cal.

One of 5100 muskets produced by Daniel Nippes of Mill Creek PA. Musket is in very good condition with original unconverted flint lock configuration (most of the US flintlock guns were converted to percussion for service in the Civil War). Clear matching 1843 date on lock and barrel. Strong lock spring holds at half cock but not at full cock. Metal surfaces are smooth and semi bright with scattered light oxidation. Bore is clean with light scattered pitting. Original threaded ramrod present. Stock is very nice with sharp un-sanded edges and only minor service blemishes.



WP 4. Confederate Spiller and Burr Navy Revolver .36 Cal. Second Model.

A superb example of this rare, Atlanta GA. produced Confederate revolver. Smooth and clean metal surfaces. All matching serial # 920. Mechanically very crisp and tight. Note clear Confederate Government “C.S.” acceptance stamp on side of frame. Many Spiller and Burr revolvers were produced for the civilian trade and do not have this stamp. The only replaced parts on this gun are extremely minor, these are the grip screw, loading lever latch tip and brass cone sight. Bore is sharp and clean. Cylinder has characteristic twist typical of Georgia revolvers. Some of the nipples have wear on the tips. Walnut grips are original, in great condition and both numbered “920” on the inside with pencil. A John Sexton letter of authenticity and appraisal is included. In 2017 this revolver was appraised at no less than $32,500.00. Since then, auction and sale results have greatly increased with even unmarked civilian models bringing close to $40,000.00. Here is your chance to add a really top percentile Spiller and Burr revolver to your collection without having to fight the auction crowd.



WP 5. Barnett London P-56 Enfield Cavalry Carbine .577 Cal.

I believe this to have been a Confederate issued and used carbine. It has definitely seen some hard use and the Federals are not known to have used these guns but preferred their breechloaders and Spencers. There are no British Military or East India Co. Proofs and the maker, Barnett of London, sold arms almost exclusively to the Confederacy. Condition is very good with metal surfaces cleaned to bright at some point long ago, but aging back nicely. Lock functions properly and is marked “BARNETT LONDON” and “TOWER”. Note Enfield nipple protector and chain. Correct Barnett proofs on breech. Long range sight present but missing leaf. Bore worn smooth but clean and not pitted. Ramrod assembly intact. Saddle ring bar present and slightly bent from service. Stock has some service dings and dents but no repairs or missing wood. Original Enfield tompion present. 



WP 6. US M-1863 Remington “New Model” Army Revolver .44 Cal.

All matching and early 1863 Serial# 44969 on frame, cylinder and barrel. Smooth clean metal surfaces with a darkening gray/plum patina. Barrel address is clear. Note early German Silver cone sight. Trigger and cylinder indexing mechanism works soundly. Original walnut grips are in very good condition, one of them stamped with a US Military Inspectors Cartouche. 



WP 7. Superb Boyle & Gamble Cavalry Saber and Scabbard.

Textbook Confederate Cavalry Saber produced early in the war by Boyle and Gamble of Richmond VA. Condition is near mint. Leather grip and single strand brass wire wrap are immaculate. All tight, no wobble. Blade is minty with original factory luster, no nicks, pitting or sharpening. Original leather throat washer is present. Scabbard condition matches the saber, near mint with just a couple of nearly imperceptible light pushes. Throat, mounts and drag are brass. There are traces of original lacquer paint running along the lapped seam. One of the best examples of this saber in existence with notable pedigree. Ex. Steve Mullinax, Ex. Kerry Elliott collections.



WP 8. Type B Richmond Arsenal Rifle Musket .58 Cal.

Good representative example of this Confederate produced long arm. Lock functions properly and is marked “C.S.” over “RICHMOND VA.” Lock is dated “1863” but is obscured by pin prick pitting. Gun metal exhibits a dark gray/plum colored patina with scattered areas of pin prick pitting. Brass butt plate and nose cap. “VP” over eagle head proof visible on breech but also obscured by pitting. Original sling loops present. Long range leaf sight has been replaced by a fixed block sight. This modification may have been done at the armory during the war. No rifling discernible in the bore. The end of the barrel shows evidence of being lightly tamped on a hard surface. Middle barrel band has been replaced. The ramrod may also be a Confederate armory replacement as it appears to have been with the gun since the war. Stock is in good condition with typical service wear. Behind the lock is the requisite “Mule Shoe” cut out that typical of Richmond produced stocks. An honest Richmond that is priced reasonably. Originally purchased from the Horse Soldier shop in Gettysburg.



WP 9. Rare Confederate P-53 Enfield Rifle Musket. State of Georgia Contract .577 Cal.

Very good condition with that desirable and untouched, attic brown patina on clean metal surfaces. Lock is marked “TOWER” and dated “1861”. Trigger and lock mechanism function properly. Original long range sight intact but missing slide. Bore is good with some combat wear. Early Blockade Runner manifest # 1317 is engraved on the butt plate tang. This gun may belong to the very first shipment of  marked and inspected Enfield Rifle Muskets to the Confederacy and State of Georgia. Stock is very good as well with defined edges and only minor service wear. Note clear “JS” over an Anchor stamp below the trigger guard tang. This the mark of Confederate viewer John Southgate, which is correct on these numbered Georgia guns. Butt stock is stamped on one side with a clear letter “G” which tells us that this Enfield was earmarked by contract to the State of Georgia. .



WP 10. Confederate Blockade Run P-53 Enfield Socket Bayonet #2641.

Very nice condition. These were issued with matching numbered .577 Cal. P-53 Enfield Rifle Muskets. See page 330-331 of Pritchard and Huey’s book “The English Connection” for more information. The stamp on the blade may represent the “Birmingham Small Arms Trade”.



WP 11. Confederate “CS and Star” Artillery Short Sword.

Minty example of this deep south produced sword (probably Macon GA.) Brass guard is well cast but crude with clear “CS” on both sides. Note lead filled repair on cross guard. Blade is clean and smooth with no nicks, pitting or sharpening. 



WP 12. US M-1840 Light Artillery Saber by Ames.

Nice looking saber, a good representative example. Original wire wrap, remnants of leather are basically carbonized upon the wood. Brass guard is stamped with rack # 55. Blade is very nice and bright with strong Ames Address and “US”, with late war date of 1865 on the ricasso. Scabbard is excellent and untouched with rack # 55 on the drag matching the saber.



WP 13. Confederate “Cloverleaf” Pike Marked “H. STEVENS”.

These absurd medieval weapons were inspired by a lack of firearms early in the war. Some collectors believe these are actually flagstaffs. Condition is excellent with full length wooden staff that measures 82″. Blade is double stamped “Made by / H. Stevens / Po Co Ga” within an oval. One of the side blade tips is broken. Shop or show pick up only.

$4995.00 HOLD T.M.


WP 14. US M-1860 Spencer Repeating Cavalry Carbine .52 Cal.

Here is a very nice example of the famous Spencer 7 shot repeating carbine. Serial # 50505. According to the Springfield research volumes, # 50503 was issued to the 19th New York Cavalry Regt. Co. E. in 1864, so I suppose it is possible that this gun may have also been issued to that unit. Condition: untouched gray turning plum colored patina on smooth metal surfaces. Light flash peppering around the breech. Legible patent address on top of the frame. Lever action, trigger and ejector mechanics work properly. Bore is clean and well defined. Stock has typical service wear and a few minor cracks along the wood grain, particularly on the butt stock. Two US Military Inspector cartouches present on the wrist. I have several Spencer Cartridges available at $35.00 ea.



WP 15. Confederate Cavalry Saber and Scabbard.

Maker uncertain. Does have similarities to North Carolina and Virginia products. Crude overall construction. Original leather grip is very nice, and single brass strand wire wrap is perfect. Guard has an untouched patina and is a bit wobbly. Blade is good, smooth with no major pitting. No nicks. Iron lap seamed scabbard has a brass throat and ring mounts, iron drag. Scattered service dings.



WP 16. Confederate P-53 Enfield Rifle Musket .577 Cal.

If you are interested in a real Confederate Rifle Musket, you might want to take a good look at this one. This gun apparently saw hard service but is still in remarkable condition. Metal surfaces are in good overall condition. There is some pitting and burnout on the hammer and breech. Lock mechanics are sound. Bore has service wear but is clean and rifling is still present. Ramrod and long range sight are original to the gun. Forward barrel band screw is a replacement. Stock is in good condition with sharp edges, no wood loss or repairs but some typical service wear. Note strong script  I.C. (Issac Curtis) Confederate viewer cartouche on flat opposite the lock. Stock makers name “T. HEATH” is on bottom edge of butt stock. SH over G3 (Sinclair Hamilton) under crown stamp present at terminus of butt plate tang. A solid Confederate blockade runner Enfield.



WP 17. WW I Prussian Artillery Officer’s Sword.

A fascinating relic from Imperial Germany. Brought home to the USA as a war trophy. Sharkskin grip is excellent. Nice details on brass guard. Blade is bright and has engraving on both sides. Scabbard retains about half of its original black paint.



WP 18. US M-1832 Short Artillery Sword and Scabbard by Ames dated 1833.

Very fine example of this iconic American Sword. Blade is bright and well marked. Scabbard matches condition of the sword with no repairs or issues.



WP 19. Confederate P-53 Enfield Rifle Musket .58 Cal.

One of the more common Confederate marked Enfields, this one has the script “I.C.” (Issac Curtis) in an oval Military Inspector’s Cartouche on the flat opposite the lock and a crown over what appears to be a “CH” adjacent to the butt plate tang. I really cannot see this mark clearly and it may be some other combination of letters entirely. I don’t have my reference books handy. In addition to that, I forgot to photograph the opposite side of the gun, of which I normally provide three views. I will update this description at a later date. Condition is generally very good. Lock is marked “TOWER” and dated 1862. Mechanically sound. Barrel exhibits consistent pin prick pitting along its surfaces. Stock is excellent with only minor service wear. No missing wood or repairs. Long range site present. Ramrod appears original to the gun. A good representative example of a 100% Confederate long arm that won’t break the bank. 



WP 20. US M-1858 Maynard Cavalry Carbine .50 Cal.

Second model, serial # 15479. Near mint condition with case colors on the frame and 100% factory blue finish on the barrel. All patent markings clear and present. Sharp mechanics. Bore is mint and bright. Stock is untouched with no signs of service wear. Note two strong US Military Inspectors Cartouches on wrist of stock. 



WP 21. Confederate 1863 Richmond Arsenal Two Band Rifle .58 Cal.

Much less common than the rifle musket. Smooth metal surfaces cleaned to bright. Lock dated 1863 and marked “C.S. RICHMOND VA.”. Lock fully functional and  when removed, you can see that the stock has the “mule shoe” cut out which lets us know that the stock is also a Richmond Arsenal product. Original Richmond long range sight and 33″ Richmond barrel. Bore is discernible and has some moderate pitting. Iron butt plate is marked “U.S.” which is acceptable as these guns were made from leftover Harper’s Ferry parts and battlefield salvage. Brass nose cap. Ramrod appears to be original. Stock is in good condition with some typical campaign wear but no major issues, filler or repairs. 



WP 22. Thomas Griswold Confederate Artillery Saber and Scabbard.

Excellent condition. Leather grip has minor wear and is mostly intact. Braided brass wire wrap is perfect. Blade is bright and clean with only minor areas of discoloration. Extreme end of tip chipped off. No markings on ricasso. Solid brass scabbard is fantastic and does not have a single blemish. 



WP 23. Rare Confederate Artillery Short Sword with original Scabbard and Belt Frog.

Remarkable condition. The brass handled sword is an unadorned Confederate copy of the US M-1832 Artillery Sword, but with a cast guard and no eagle. Sword is very nice and well balance. Untouched mustard colored patina on the handle. Wasp waisted blade has a single unstopped fuller and is semi-bright with no issues. What really makes this sword remarkable is the scabbard. This is the only one of this type that I have seen with its complete and original scabbard. Leather is in good overall condition with some very minor separation along the hand stitched seam. Scabbard tip is intact as is the brass throat. Two piece belt frog has a leather front and tarred canvas back side. Classic Confederate, probably produced in the deep South. Rare.



WP 24. Blockade Run Confederate P-56 Saddle Ring Cavalry Carbine .577 Cal. Marked “E.P. BOND/LONDON” and associated with Texas Cavalry Troops.

These particular guns marked “E.P. BOND” and stamped with a “JS” over an anchor on the comb of the stock, are thought to have been brought into Texas after November of 1864, via a blockade runner based in Havana Cuba. All known identified specimens have Texas association as noted in an article by Mark Callahan, North South Trader Civil War magazine, Vol. XXVII No. 3. This particular gun comes from the late Fred Donaldson collection and is in good condition. Metal surfaces have a dark untouched patina. Lock functions properly and has a strong “E.P. BOND” over “LONDON” stamp. The bore has distinct rifling with some pitting. Stock has an attractive appearance with a dark patina and service wear. Minor wood loss near the breech and some very well done crack repairs around the lock and trigger guard. Breech is stamped with correct London proofs. Swivel ramrod assembly removed long ago and an Enfield type replacement with a threaded tip has been added. This was no doubt done intentionally for ease of loading. 



WP 25. Confederate Socket Bayonet produced by the Fayetteville NC. Arsenal .69 Cal.

Made to fit the M-1842 Military Musket. Excellent condition with functioning lock ring. Appears to have been nickel plated but I am not sure. Rare bayonet.



WP 26. US M-1832 Foot Artillery Sword and Belt Rig.

Very early Ames sword dated 1833 with it’s original scabbard and buff leather belt. Reproduction three piece US Artillery Buckle features a Federal Eagle and crossed cannons. The sword has a bright blade with some pitting at the ricasso and a few nicks. Leather belt is in great shape. 



WP 27. Double Barrel Pinfire Belt Pistol, 12 mm.

Interesting imported pistol most likely produced in Belgium or France. Many such weapons were carried into battle by soldiers on both sides of the conflict. Pinfire cartridges are common finds in Civil War camps and battlefields. Condition is very good, cocking action and hidden triggers function properly. No issues or repairs.



WP 28. US M-1862 Transitional Joslyn Cavalry Carbine .52 Cal.

A good representative example with an untouched attic patina. Matching serial # 2919. The Joslyn carbine fired a standard Spencer rimfire cartridge of .52 caliber. Joslyn’s unique loading arrangement consisted of opening up the hinged breechblock, pivoting the breechblock to the left and then inserting a single round. The method of opening the breech on the original model 1862 used a hook-type friction latch. This carbine employs the later model pull-out knob latch. Fladerman’s guide lists this a scarce transitional detail between the m-62 and m-64 carbines. Fully functional mechanics. Smooth metal with no major pitting. “JOSLYN FIRE ARMS CO. STONINGTON CONN.” address is present on lock plate but weak. Carbine sling bar and ring are present. Bore is in good condition. Stock is better than average with only minor service wear. Faint US Military Inspector’s Cartouche present above sling bar.



WP 29. US M-1850 Field and Staff Officer’s Sword and Belt Rig Identified to Col. Ira Washington Ainsworth, 177th New York Vol. Inf. Regt.

Very high quality identified grouping. The following is taken from The Union army: a history of military affairs in the loyal states, 1861-65 — records of the regiments in the Union army — cyclopedia of battles — memoirs of commanders and soldiers. Madison, WI: Federal Pub. Co., 1908. volume II. 
“One Hundred and Seventy-seventh Infantry,—Col., Ira W. Ainsworth; Lieut.-Cols., Frank Chamberlain, David M. Woodhall; Majs., David ‘M. Woodhall, Charles E. Davis. The nucleus of this regiment was the l0th National Guard, under Col. Ainsworth, which volunteered for nine months’ service and was accepted. It was recruited to the full number at Albany and vicinity, was organized at Albany, and there mustered into the U. S. service for nine months on Nov. 21, 1862. It left the state Dec. 16 for New Orleans, where it was assigned to the 3d brigade of Sherman’s division, afterwards the 3d brigade, 2nd division, 19th corps. It took part in skirmishes at McGill’s ferry, Pontchatoula, Civiques ferry and Amite river and was active throughout the siege of Port Hudson, where it fought gallantly in the general assault of May 27. Its loss during the siege was 23 killed and wounded. On the expiration of its term of service, the regiment returned to New York and was mustered out at Albany, Sept. 24, 1863”. Colonel Ainsworth’s sword and belt has been very well taken care of since the war ended. The photo copy I have, (included) shows Ainsworth wearing this very sword and belt rig. Sword retains original sharkskin grip and finely braided wire wrap. Gilt brass hand guard is sharply detailed and retains Ainsworth’s original Officer’s Sword Knot and Tassel. Throat washer present. Blade is superb with a mirror like lustre and sharp etching with patriotic themes on a frosted background. No maker mark present so most likely an imported blade. Steel scabbard has ornate brass mounts, drag and throat. Note blank presentation space on upper mount. The classic New York Militia belt rig was issued with the sword and still retains its original storage box with Colonel Ainsworth’s name written on the side in brown ink. The belt is simply superb. Supple black leather with intact brass hangers and fittings. The buckle has matching bench #18 stamped on the reverse, and on the keeper. Note applied silver “NY” and wreath. Truly exceptional! 



WP 30. US M-1858 Starr Cavalry Carbine .54 Cal.

As you can see in the pictures, this is quite an outstanding weapon. Strong case colors on the lock and breech, thinning factory blue finish on the barrel. No pitting whatsoever. Serial # 13908. Mechanics crisp and tight. Bore sharp and bright. Maker stampings on the lock plate are clear and read, “STARR ARMS CO. / YONKERS, N.Y.” in two lines. Barrel surface has a thin, one-line marked “STARR ARMS CO. YONKERS, N.Y.” in front of the rear sight. Receiver tang back of hammer is stamped with “STARR’S PATENT / SEPT. 14th 1858”. A single iron sling ring is mounted on the left side of the receiver. Stock has sharp edges and factory feathered texture. Only minor service bumps and abrasions. No inspector’s cartouche visible.



WP 31. Scarce US M-1858 Starr Navy Revolver .36 Cal.

Approximately 3000 of these revolvers were produced making the Navy the scarcest of the Starr Arms Co. revolvers. This one bears matching serial # 2666. Clear Starr Arms Co. patent address on frame. Untouched and consistent plum colored attic patina. Metal surfaces are mostly smooth with the exception of some minor pin prick pitting on and around the cylinder. There are traces of original blue finish here and there. Double action works well and is tight with no cylinder wobble. Original walnut one piece grip is problem free with only minor service wear.



WP 32. US M-1840 “Wristbreaker” Heavy Cavalry Saber marked “Sheble & Fisher”.

Scarce American maker. Saber is in superb condition with high quality original leather grip and braided brass wire wrap. Leather throat washer present. Hand guard has no bends or damage. Blade is bright and maintains some original luster. Marked “SHEBLE & FISHER” on ricasso. Some examples have “PHILADa” underneath the legend but this one does not. Scabbard is also very good with only a couple of very minor service dings. 



WP 33. US M-1841 “Mississippi” Rifle .58 Cal. by Robbins & Lawrence dated 1850.

Converted to .58 Caliber by Colt. Good representative example of this popular M-1841 Military Rifle. Lock is marked “ROBBINS & LAWRENCE” over “US” and “WINDSOR VT. 1850” behind the hammer. Gun metal surfaces are smooth with a browning patina. “L.B.C.” proof stamp on breech but barrel date worn off. Ramrod is a modern replacement. Bore is well defined but has some pitting. 



WP 34. Excavated Allen & Thurber Pepperbox .32 Cal.

Very good condition and complete. Provenance unknown.



WP 35. Dug Lefaucheaux Pinfire Revolver 12 mm. 

Excellent condition. You don’t see many of these large caliber revolvers excavated. Provenance unknown. Ex. Claude Maley collection. 



WP 36. Rare US M-1840 Artillery Officer’s Saber and Scabbard by Horstmann & Sons.

Original leather grip and braided wire wrap are untouched and show light wear. Brass knuckle bow and pommel have a deep mustard patina. Blade is clean and bright with some original luster. No pitting or nicks. Ricasso clearly marked “HORSTMANN & SONS” on one side and “PHILADELPHIA” on the other. Scabbard is also very nice with smooth clean metal and only very minor service pushes towards the drag.

$2995.00 HOLD M.S.


WP 37. US M-1864 Triplett & Scott Repeating Carbine .56-52 Cal.

Designed to use the self contained Spencer rimfire cartridge. Serial # 3043. Good overall condition with scarce 22″ short barrel. Metal has a gray turning plum patina, mostly smooth with some areas of pin prick oxidation. Hammer will not hold at cock which is probably a minor issue to repair. All patent markings present and legible. Appears to be a crack that has been filled at the wrist.



WP 38. US M-1860 Light Cavalry Saber by Emerson and Silver with scarce 1865 Date.

Very fine condition with original leather grip and braided brass wire wrap. Blade is semi bright with a few flea bite nicks. One side of ricasso marked “US” over inspector stamp “J.F.” and “1865”. The other side is marked “EMERSON & SILVER, TRENTON N.J.”. Scabbard has an untouched brown patina and no dents.



WP 39. Colt “Special Model” 1861 Rifle Musket .58 Cal. Dated 1864.

A very good representative example of the Colt Contract Rifle Musket. Untouched attic brown patina on all surfaces. Lock and trigger mechanism works properly. This weapon has seen a lot of combat use. The bore is shot out and there is burnout around the breech nipple from firing. Stock is remarkably nice for a heavily used gun, only minor dings and minor wood loss around the breech at the nipple. A small sliver missing near nose cap. Ramrod appears original but is missing threads at bottom end. All in all, a very good looking American Civil War Rifle Musket that was certainly “there”.



WP 40. Identified Knights of Pythias Presentation Sword with Scabbard.

Really ornate ceremonial sword and scabbard. From what I understand, the Knights of Pythias was a fraternal order founded in 1864. The blade is lavishly etched with religious iconography. The owner’s name, “John W. Hische” is engraved on the blade. It would be interesting to see if this name pops up on a Civil War roster. I assume that the sword is post Civil War because the maker, “JAMES LUKER NEW YORK” is one that I don’t recognize. The initials “FCB” represent “Friendship, Charity and Benevolence”.



WP 41. U.S. M-1847 Cavalry Musketoon .69 Cal.

Scarce gun in good overall condition with smooth gray metal on the barrel. Brass barrel bands, butt plate, nose cap and lock retainer. Lock functions properly and is dated 1854. Bore is clean and not pitted. Stock has service wear but still retains nice edges and has a US Military Inspectors Cartouche on the flat opposite the lock. Brass lock retainer is stamped twice with the soldier’s name “G.M. HAPPY”. Perhaps it is possible to find this name in a database. M-1842 style ramrod appears original to the gun. Saddle ring bar has been intentionally removed, possibly to convert it into an artillery musketoon. 

$1995.00 HOLD N.H.


WP 42. US M-1861 Trenton Military Contract Rifle Musket .58 Cal.

A very solid and iconic American Civil War Rifle Musket. Condition very good with smooth metal surfaces. Lock functions properly. Marked “U.S.” over “TRENTON” and dated 1863. Matching 1863 date on barrel. Nipple tip is broken. Original long range site is present. Bore is clean but has some light wear. Stock is in good shape with typical service wear. US Military Cartouche present opposite the lock.



WP 43. Harpers Ferry M-1855 Two Band Rifle .58 Cal. dated 1860.

Rare gun and very likely Confederate used when you consider the obvious hard combat use this rifle saw and the 1860 date. Untouched attic plum patina on the metal. Mechanically sound. Long range site is missing the interior leaves. Lock is marked “U.S.” over “HARPER’S FERRY” and dated 1860. Both sling loops missing. Swelled tulip tip ramrod is not original to the gun but could be a wartime Confederate replacement. Saber bayonet lug is missing. Bore is shot out. Stock shows heavy campaign wear and has a small crack opposite the lock near the breech. Even taking into account the blemishes, we still have a respectable and rare Harpers Ferry Rifle that totally whistles Dixie.



WP 44. US M-1836 Military Flintlock Pistol .54 Cal.

Good overall condition and all original except for the hammer which is a modern replacement. Lock is marked with an eagle head and “A. WATERS / MILLBURY, MS. / 1838” in front of the hammer. Clean and smooth metal surfaces. Barrel has proper “U.S.” over “LF” and “P” proof stamps. Lock mechanics are crisp. Ramrod assembly is original and complete. Stock is in good with some mild service wear and two strong US Military Inspector Cartouches on flat opposite the lock. 



WP 45. US M-1841 Harper’s Ferry “Mississippi” Rifle .58 Cal.

Converted from its original .54 Cal. by being bored out to .58 cal. and having a long range flip site added per US Army regulations. Condition is very good with clean metal surfaces. Lock is dated 1851 and functions properly. Matching 1851 date on barrel plug tang. Original long range site and ramrod. Proper “WW” over “P” proofs on barrel. “VP” and Eagle Head proof present on breech but hard to see. Bore is well defined but has some dirt and pitting. Stock is also very good with sharp un-sanded edges and only minor service wear. There is a crack near the middle barrel band on one side. Brass patch box retains a spare nipple and has the correct 3 punch marks. Unmarked brass butt plate is also correct for the Harper’s Ferry.
