    First Year of Issue

    Nice 1861 Dated U.S. Model 1861 .58 Caliber Percussion Rifled Musket. All metal with an overall smooth gray finish. A few minor shallow pits and dings. All markings distinct including those on the lock and matching 1861 breech date along with barrel proofs. Mechanically crisp with a strong bore. The gun is complete and original. The wood shows no abuse with legible markings and faint inspector's cartouches in the wood opposite the lock. Rare, first year of issue, with all but a handful of these early dated Springfield's being issued for use early in the war, and seeing heavy use thereafter.
