RJT#6202 -


Many weapons used by Native Americans would have been present at most of the late 19th century's most well-known battles, including the Battle of Little Bighorn. This was a U.S. Springfield Model 1863 rifle-musket and has since been bored out to .62 caliber smoothbore, and sawed off to a 16 inch barrel. It has an overall length of 31 inches. The ramrod is 16 inches long. The wood has a short crack above the barrel band and only minor nicks and dings otherwise. The lock is marked US over Springfield.The gun has an even, pleasant, brown patina, which is smooth and uncleaned. The lock, hammer, trigger guard, butt, tang, are all in perfect condition and ready for daily use. It is a good sound horseback or canoe gun. The tacks on the stock make me think that it might have been a reservation gun and the medallion on the left side of the stock reads US INDIAN SERVICE. It sure is interesting. Other items are not included.

This is an ANTIQUE and can be shipped directly to you. (adult signature required) this is an Antique and I think a good sound shooter. No guarantees, warranties, or liabilities for any actual usage. If any firearms are to be used for shooting purposes, a qualified gunsmith should inspect them first. We will ship outside the U.S.A.
