    British P 1853 .577 Caliber Percussion Rifled Musket by E. P. Bond. With a very high percentage of Bond's production going directly to the Confederacy, there is a strong possibility this gun did, indeed, see Confederate service. Metal with generally dark smooth patina with a few lighter areas and some light pitting at the breech. Lock nicely marked "E. P Bond London", mechanically fine. Rifled bore very good, with all brass furniture exhibiting a dark untouched patina. Stock with some minor dents commensurate with normal use, with a 3 1/2" hairline that extends from the trigger guard to the upper lock screw escutcheon. Complete with original ramrod and rear sight. The white buff sling is a later addition. Nice example of a P1853 by a desirable contractor
