    Near Mint M1863 Remington .58 Caliber Percussion "Zouave" Rifle with the Original Saber Bayonet and Scabbard. Doubtless the most attractive longarm produced during the war, their exact usage and the moniker "Zouave" remain a mystery. Some 12,500 of these guns were produced, with apparently the vast majority going unissued. This is an exceptional example. Retains 99% of the original blue and case colors with deep crisp markings. Mint bore mechanically crisp. All brass furniture with nice untouched patina. Wood also untouched with just a few minor storage dents and deep crisp inspectors' marks. Remarkably there is a small sliver missing on the left side of the barrel tang, obviously occurred long ago with all wood including the sliver, displaying a nice dark patina. Brass handled saber bayonet displays the correct BH inspector's mark. Bayonet and scabbard both mint. A gorgeous Civil War rifle.
