Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - U.S. Springfield -- 1861 Needham Conversion Musket w/Bayonet

Here is a rare and a unique conversation piece. It is an US Springfield 1861 Civil War Musket converted after the Civil War into a cartridge rifle known as The Needham Conversion. The outside of the barrel and lock looks to may have been cleaned up and I do not see any pitting. Has the original rear sight & front end sight. The barrel underneath when you take it out of the stock looks to be all in the original white yet and has some inpsection stamps (see pics). Hammer screw is missing, but the hammer cocks and functions good. Looks like the firing pin is missing also. Bore looks dark inside, but I can still feel some rifeling in the end of the bore when I stick my pinky finger in. Stock has an angle cut between 2nd & 3rd barrel band but looks good and tight (see pics)otherwise the rest of the stock seems pretty solid yet and in mpretty good shape, some of original finish is worn in some areas and a few handleing nicks and dings but nothing bad. All barrel bands are marked with a "U" Bayonet didn't come with the musket (I bought it seperate at a Antique Market)and has some light pitting and is missing the locking ring but fits good to rifle and looks good on it so I will sell it with the musket.Forward sling swivel is also missing. This old musket looks good hanging above the fireplace, or it would be a good one for someone to restore or use for parts. It's still a nice looking piece and you just don't see these everyday anymore, but because it is an old antique, you are buying this old girl "as is".
