The Springfield Model 1861 rifle-musket was the primary weapon used by the Union infantry during the U.S. Civil War. This example is dated "1862" on the lock and barrel, standard "Eagle/Shield" motif and "U.S./SPRINGFIELD" markings on the lock ahead of the hammer, and two cartouches are on the left stock flat, including that of Master Armorer Erskine S. Allin. Includes US socket bayonet and leather scabbard.
Fine with bright polished surfaces overall, a few patches of light pitting, and sharp lock markings. Stock is also very fine with some scattered light scratches and dents, some light chips in the ramrod channel, a few chips on top of the wrist, and crisp cartouches. Mechanically excellent. Included bayonet and scabbard are both fine. This attractive Springfield Model 1861 rifle-musket would make a fine addition to any U.S. Martial or Civil War collection!
