This an antique U.S. Model 1861 Rifle-Musket, made in 1862 at Springfield Armory in Springfield, Massachusetts. This rifle has been modified from its full-length configuration to that of a carbine. The barrel & stock have been cut down & the barrel may have been bored smooth. No nose cap or ramrod. The rear sight was removed & a blade in the front added. No sling ring in front of the trigger guard. Confederate captured arms were known to have modified muskets to this configuration to be used in the hands of Confederate cavalry due to shortages of weapons.

Stock has a darkened oil finish with several nick & dings & a large contusion on the belly & a small chunk missing behind the percussion nipple. Metal surfaces have aged to a full even brown patina. US marked metal buttplate. The lock is marked ''1862'' & ''U.S./SPRINGFIELD''. The overall condition is fair. The action is functional. Antique reconfigured civil war carbine. No FFL Req - Value: 300 to 600
