Out of stock



This beast of a rifled musket was manufactured in 1863 in .69 caliber.  It has a 34.25″ rifled round barrel, octagonal at the breech with proof marks, saber bayonet lug and long range rear sight.  Tang stamped with the S/N 4xxx.  The lockplate marked with a large eagle over “WHITNEYVILLE” and the action functions properly.  It features a well worn and used two band walnut stock.  Metal parts have surface oxidation marks which are not unusual for a sea service weapon.  The most inexpensive example on the market today, but solid as a rock!  Ramrod is an old replacement, definitely shows age and period use.  Price INCLUDES shipping to the lower 48 US.
