Description:

Manufactured 1863. Empty receiver sight dovetail, folding ladder rear sight on the barrel and the two-line barrel legend with filled dovetail. Includes a 4-piece metal cleaning rod. The full serial number is on the top barrel flat, left side of the lower tang, stock inlet, both buttplate screws, and buttplate. Only around 14,000 Henrys were manufactured in 1860-1866, and around half of them are believed to have been used by Union soldiers, mostly purchased by the men themselves, some using reenlistment bonuses. "That damned Yankee rifle that can be loaded on Sunday and fired all week" was one of the most advanced firearms of the war.
