Description

Seller's Description:
Wesson and Prescott 1841 .38 caliber Target Rifle. This is a beautiful example of the type of percussion target rifles made in the 1835 to 1840 period. It was made by Edwin Wesson, brother of Frank and Daniel Wesson. He was considered one of the finest makers of this type of rifle in that era and the first to use false muzzles. It has engraved German Silver furniture and still has gunk in the patchbox. The barrel is cast steel. The breech plug, lock assembly, hammer, and nipple block are engraved. There is corrosion around the nipple from the corrosive caps in use at the time. It has the socket for a butt plate sight used when shooting laying on your back. The stock has two cracks in the toe from hitting the butt on the ground and a chip by the top right tang. The wood has a beautiful figure. It is missing the false muzzle, ramrod, butt sight, and rear sight elevator. It may have been rebored from .36 caliber as was done when the original barrel was shot out and the false muzzle was not used again. Who knows, this rifle was shot a lot so probably has a great history. If only it could talk. The bore is frosty but clean with no rust and pretty sharp rifling except right at the muzzle. Please ask any questions or request more photos before bidding. S/H & Insurance $45 (it’s heavy) with proof of age. Sunrise Pass Arms Co.
