Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Parkers Snow & Co. -- .58 cal Miller Conversion of US Model 1863 Rifle

This is a breech loading "Miller" Conversion of a US Model 1863 rifle (Civl War musket) made by "Parkers, Snow & Co." of Meriden, Conn. The contract manufacturer's name and location are on the lock plate along with the "eagle" over "U. S." and "1864," the year of manufacture of the original percussion musket from which the conversion was made. This .58 rimfire caliber rifle is in quite good condition for its age. The metal definitely shows its age but the suface imperfections are too light to be called pitting. The color is varying shades of old rifle plum. The bore looks new. There are "u"'s on the barrel bands. The wood has no major dings or cracks. I made some minor acrylic repairs to the wood which I have attempted to show in the last two pictures. Hopefully, they are hard to find. There are some man made marks on the left side, opposite the lock plate but I cannot identify them as a cartouche or any other armory marking. This rifle is a very interesting piece of history with the dual heritage of being a civil war rifle and one that has been converted from percussion to breech loading. Please see my related auctions for 4 live .58 caliber rimfire rounds and 22 .58 caliber rimfire blanks. If you have any questions about this rifle, please don't hesitate to ask.
