    Default WTS: EXC Colt 1861 Special Model Rifle Musket; 100% Original Civil War rifle

    This is an EXCELLENT Colt 1861 Special Model Rifle Musket in original condition (no sanding, refinish, etc.). This is NOT one of the Colt signature series reproductions. This rifle appears from all indications to be a Bannerman sale in unissued (and likely unfired) condition as surplussed from the Government. Many parts such as the trigger guard and buttplate show the (hardened) original grease. There are some areas where someone (NOT ME) may have used oiled steel wool to remove some oil buildup (see photos). This does NOT cover the whole rifle and is only in a few spots. Rifle is in correct bright finish throughout with all correct Federal (and no state) inspection and acceptance marks as made in 1864. No cracks or repairs to stock. Metal is excellent as well including bore. If you are going to have just one Civil War rifle, this is a good candidate (it was mine). Upcoming wedding requires some funds in the bank so I have to part with a couple of my higher value rifles. Price reduced to $2800 plus actual insured shipping (USPS priority with signature) to your door. They don't come any nicer than this, and sell for much more from known auction houses. Copy of Driver's license required to prove age. Feel free to ask for any additional photos required; any and all questions answered. Buyer to pay with MO or personal check (held until cleared). Three day inspection if returned in same condition (minus all shipping). Thanks for looking!
