Original U.S. Civil War Springfield Percussion Rifle Musket Converted to Civilian Fowling Piece - dated 1864

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Completely reconditioned after its stint in the U.S. Civil War, this 1864 dated Musket has been half stocked for use as a civilian hunting gun for both ball and shot. All of the mounts are now partially engraved and nickel plated, and the butt stock was shortened and had a new butt plate installed. The original rifled barrel was also replaced with a smoothbore fowling barrel from Liège, Belgium, which bears the E / L G / * in an oval and "Tower of Liège" proof marks.

The gun is in lovely condition despite its conversion. The heavily blued barrel is 36 inches long, with an overall length of 52 inches. The stock has been polished to a high gloss, and the wrist checkered. Even the original cleaning rod has been nickel plated.

A great looking fowling piece for over the mantle piece, with a U.S. Military history!
