Item No.: 8714 Price : $1,395.00
Item : U.S. MODEL 1863 S.N. & W.T.C. CONTRACT RIFLE MUSKET
Description :
Here is an original, Civil War, U.S. Model 1863 Rifle Musket manufactured by S. Norris & W.T. Clement of Springfield, Massachusetts in 1863. These S.N. & W.T.C. rifle muskets were built under contract solely for the state of Massachusetts. Approximately 11,000 were produced between 1863 and 1864. This musket is in very good condition. The barrel has a pewter silver patina heavily over speckled with brown. The lock plate is about 60% dark brown. The hammer, trigger guard, and butt are dark brown. The butt plate patina has a rough texture. The gun's mechanics are excellent. The bore is in fine condition. There is a little light pitting, but the rifling is strong with the majority of the bore smooth and shiny. The stock is antique good, with a number of small dings, scratches, and gouges from use. There is a short hairline crack extending back from the lock about 3/4". This is a nice, untouched Civil War musket of special interest to the Massachusetts collector. Stock no. 22906
