Description:

This is one of only 1,600 Remington Model 1841 rifles altered by F.H. Grosz of New York. These rifles feature a turned down barrel muzzle with a small square bayonet stud added to the underside near the muzzle and a repositioned blade front sight behind the turn-down area. This alteration allows the barrel to accept the included socket bayonet. These rifles were part of a New York State contract that were delivered by December 1861. Some of these rifles are known to have been issued to Federal units and N.Y. 7th, 10th, 12th, and 192nd Regiments. The lock plate of this rifle has the three line Remington marking and the date 1849 stamped vertically behind the hammer. The barrel tang is dated "1853", and the barrel is stamped "U.S./JCB/P" at the breech and "STEEL" on the left flat. The stock has two cartouches and brass furniture including a patch box with worm, patch, and replacement nipple. It includes a tulip head ramrod. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Very good. The iron surfaces remain mostly bright with some small patches of pitting and spotting. The brass components have an attractive aged patina. The wood is good with numerous dings and scrapes along with some small chips as would be expected from an arm that saw use. Mechanically fine with mostly legible markings. The bayonet is good with brown patina forming along with patches of pitting.
