Item No.: 9881 Price : $2,650.00
Item : LAMSON, GOODNOW, & YALE (LG&Y) MODEL 1861 "SPECIAL" RIFLE MUSKET, .58 CALIBER
Description :
This is a .58 Caliber percussion US Model 1861 Rifle Musket manufactured by Lamson, Goodnow, & Yale (LG&Y) of Windsor, Vermont in 1864, The date is marked on the lock and barrel flat. Colt was the lead design on the M1861 Special Model Rifle Muskets. These Enfield-like pieces were built on Robbins and Lawrence Enfield Machinery and incorporated many of the better features of these British arms. Differences from the standard Model 1861 rifle musket included a wedge shaped, stronger hammer, straight ramrods with stock spoon, and screw bands with no band springs. The clean out screw on the bolster was eliminated. These changes led directly to the improvements incorporated in the M1863 Springfield Rifle Muskets. This musket is in fine condition with a smooth brown patina. There is a bit of fine pitting on the hammer nose and around the bolster. This musket has excellent mechanics and a very fine to excellent bore. The stock is in fine condition with just a few small dings from use. There are two visible inspector's cartouches on the left flat of the stock. This is a nice musket and a good candidate for shooting. Stock no. 27161
