DESCRIPTION

An 1861 dated P53 Tower rifle musket. .577 caliber (25/25). Lockplate marked "1861 / TOWER"  and crown behind hammer. Barrel marked with standard London proofs.  Brass buttplate, triggerguard and nosecap. Original ramrod. English walnut stock with 3 barrel bands.

A nice early war gun as imported by both north and south that is bound to have seen much action on the historic fields of battle from 1861 to 65.

 

CONDITION

    Very nice, untouched condition. Lock markings are crisp and color of hammer and lock are matching. Barrel and bands have a deep dark patina with minor pitting around breech area. Bore is good. Mechanism is tight. Wood looks untouched by modern collectors, showing expected bumps and bruises for such an early gun. Missing rear sight.
