Antebellum Rifle

Antebellum Rifle
This is an example of a high quality specially made 19th century marksman's rifle in good condition. It's heavy 30" octagonal barrel was equipped with an open rear sight and a front blade sight. The sight platform allows for different sights to be used depending on the circumstances.

The complex system of double set triggers allowed for one trigger to "set" the second firing trigger for a very light pull. This enabled the shotter fore with the interference of trigger pull to affect the precision of his aim.

The weapon is expensively finished with engraved German silvered brass patch box, triggerguard, buttplated, inlays and other parts. The gunmaker's name, lightly stamped into the lockplate has been obliterated over time. The ramrod is replaced and is of incorrect length.

Shipping insurance is highly recommended.
