DESCRIPTION

An 1847, Mexican War, dated Mississippi rifle manufactured by Robbins, Kendall & Lawrence. Rifle is in original 54 caliber configuration. Brass mountings and patchbox. Browned barrel. Case hardened lockplate and hammer. Ramrod with brass trumpet head. Markings on lockplate are "ROBBINS/KENDALL &/LAWRENCE/U.S." forward of hammer and vertically behind hammer "WINDSOR VT/1847".  Barrel markings are " US/JH/VP" on left breech and 1846 date on tang.

This rifle is in excellent condition with faded case hardening visible on lock and hammer. The barrel is exceptional with the slightly faded but even original browning.  Wood is very good with sharp edges and only minor storage marks. Brass has an even, aged patina.

Very few remain in this condition and will be difficult to upgrade.

 

CONDITION

    Excellent condition with much factory browning remaining on barrel. All markings are sharp. Traces of case hardening on lock and hammer. Wood has sharp edges. Ramrod is the original.  Excellent bore.
