U.S. Sharps 1859 Percussion Rifle

This is a completely original Sharps "New Model" percussion rifle, in very good condition, complete with bayonet lug for a saber bayonet. It retains a lot of original finish and is serial numbered 41522, which dates it to 1861 or earlier. It has an iron matchbox, which is still filled with original grease that has solidified. This is as clean and untouched a Civil War Sharps rifle as can be found. Dimensions: 47" l; .54 caliber. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $55.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

Condition:

Very good with some original finish. The stock show signs of use and the cartouche is not visible. The bore is dirty, but the rifling is strong and the action is tight. Witherells strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
