Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - ELI WHITNEY, MODEL 1861 -- CONNECTICUT CONTRACT, CIVIL WAR, 58 CALIBER

Here is a WHITNEY MODEL 186 CONNECTICUT contract musket. There were a total of 14000 of these rifle delivered to the state of Connecticut in 2 contracts in 1862 and 1863. These rifles "generally" conform to the standard Model 1861 rifle. Distiguishing features of this model is the pewter nose cap, rear sight dovtailed into the barrel and no inspector marks in the wood or "US" stamp on the buttplate. According to Flayderman it is definitely known that these rifles were used by the 22nd and 27th CT Volunteer Infantry. As you can see this one has had the barrel shortened slightly (37 3/4"), ramrod is a replacment and the rear sight is missing. The wood is excellent with no cracks or major damage. The lock works fine. The nipple and breech are clear and I have test fired it with a blank load. The metal has some pitting on the lock and at the breech area and I can see no inspector marks at the breech. This will make a great wall hanger, or it can be restored by someone with metal skills. This is an ANTIQUE and can be shipped directly to you. Shipping with be $40 in the USA. Foreign sales OK with extra shipping. "PRINCESS",the watch cat, is not included. "AS IS, NO RESERVE and NO RETURNS!!!
