Moller".  The action still works nicely.  The wood is pretty with the normal small dings and marks of 201 years of being around and seeing half a dozen conflicts.  It has literally been over 20 years since I've had one of these to offer !!!!--$2,250.SOLD

  5. bultmold.JPG (62688 bytes)bultmoldrev.JPG (69323 bytes)Excellent condition single cavity .44 cal. bullet mold for a single shot boot pistol.  I am including an original ball from here at Stones River to display with the mold.  Many soldiers - both North and South - carried a pistol of this type in their vest or boot as a last resort.--$65.

Model 1849 Colt Pocket Revolver.  It has all matching serial number {107276} including the wedge which is very sought after EARLY 1850s production and considering that this revolver is out of the "Sunny South" and early 1850s production almost certainly saw C.S. service.  The revolver has about 70 % cylinder scene remaining and about 90 % silvering left on the trigger guard and backstrap.  There is even a tad of original bluing left in some recessed areas.  The original walnut grips are in nice condition and have about 90 % original lacquer.  ANY Civil War enthusiast would be thrilled to find this under the Christmas tree !!--$1,250.
  9. bulletmold.JPG (59372 bytes)bulletmoldcls.JPG (67077 bytes)Nice condition cast brass "Colt Patent" marked .31 cal. double cavity bullet mold correct for the Model 1849 Colt .31 cal. Pocket Revolver.  If you have a nice Colt revolver - here is the perfect compliment for it.--$150.

Austrian Model 1842 Engineer's Rifled musket.  The musket has a smooth - never cleaned - deep chocolate brown patina, and is the type weapon many Confederates carried the first two years of the Civil War.  I have never recovered a .69 cal. Austrian projectile anywhere but early Confederate Infantry camps.  Here is a nice, untouched, Confederate carried musket at a VERY reasonable price.--$850.
  12. 1863tauntonbutt.JPG (14801 bytes)1863tauntonbrl.JPG (9902 bytes)1863taunton.JPG (55479 bytes)1863tauntoncrst.JPG (90172 bytes)1863tauntonmrk.JPG (77052 bytes)1863tauntondte.JPG (75638 bytes)1863tauntonus.JPG (56127 bytes)Nice condition .58 cal. "William Mason" Model 1861 contract rifled musket.  The metal is clean just beginning to grey with age.  The lockplate is marked "1863 - Wm.

  14. carbine.JPG (13118 bytes)carbinerev.JPG (47497 bytes)carbinelckplt.JPG (49005 bytes)carbinedte.JPG (82294 bytes)Confederate Cavalry used .71 cal. Model 1842 Austrian Cavalry Carbine.  This example is just in out of the local area and has a beautiful NEVER CLEANED attic brown patina.  The lockplate is clearly marked "1852" and it still has "knee deep" 12 groove rifling.  The action still works properly - but the mainspring is very weak.  In over 40 years of relic digging - I have never recovered ammunition for this weapon anywhere except Confederate Cavalry sites.--$1,150.
  15. guntools.JPG (54115 bytes)Group of 7 assorted musket parts that are either non-excavated or are early pick-ups or recoveries, and still remain in nice enough condition to use on a musket today.  There are {2} .58 cal. Springfield or contract musket breechplugs - one brass Mississippi trigger guard - {1} .58 cal. Springfield trigger guard - one cast brass Enfield nose cap {1} one .69 cal. Model 1816 musket buttplate and {1} cast brass trigger guard to an unknown musket.  A real bargain !!--$195. for all

Allen and Wheelock 6-shot Navy Model Revolver.  The metal has a smooth grey-brown patina with markings of "Allen and Wheelock - Worcester - Allen's Pts. Jan. 13 - Dec. 15, 1857".  This revolver was ONLY produced in 1861 and 1862 and with a TOTAL production of only 500 weapons.  One of the few weapons of the Civil War era in which the trigger guard pivots down and becomes the weapon's ramrod.  Very nice condition with a little case color still visible on the hammer and trigger guard.--$1,295.
  17. flask.JPG (50871 bytes)flaskrev.JPG (53727 bytes)flaskeagle.JPG (68838 bytes)Just in - Rare - Rare - Rare "1832" date flask known to most collectors as the "Rifleman's Flask".  The flask clearly shows use and has a beautiful - never cleaned - rich, aged patina and is marked "1832 - Dingee - New York".  It is out of a Georgia estate and would be a fine addition to any early military collection.--$450.SOLD

Leige musket imported by the State of Texas - said to have come up through Mexico and TOTALLY amount to only 264 weapons purchased.  This type weapon is pictured and described on page 196 in  "Confederate Long Arms" by Hill and Anthony.  Some feel that the parts for this musket were imported and that the weapon was assembled in Bastrop, TX.  Others feel that Texas imported the weapon already manufactured, and I tend to personally feel this to likely be the case.  This is a musketoon type weapon with the lug for a saber bayonet.  Less than five examples TOTAL of this weapon are known, and the other known examples are all full length three band muskets that took a standard triangular socket bayonet.  To my knowledge - This is the ONLY existing "musketoon" - "saber bayonet" accepting type weapon known.  I'm betting some "TEXAS" artifact collector is going to want this little jewel.--SOLD
  19. 1849cltpckt.JPG (55029 bytes)1849cltpcktrev.JPG (55892 bytes)1849cltpcktmkr.JPG (41139 bytes)1849cltpcktptnt.JPG (66480 bytes)1849cltpcktserl.JPG (45536 bytes)1849cltpcktserl2.JPG (46685 bytes)Nice condition .31 cal. Model 1849 Colt Pocket Revolver.  It has nice clean metal with an all matching serial number {328193} except for the wedge which is an old replacement.  This serial number falls right at the end of the Civil War or possibly just after.  It has nice clear markings - good rifling - and crisp action.  Every collection needs a pretty little Colt Revolver.--$950.
  20. 1856rem.JPG (11972 bytes)1856rembrl.JPG (29978 bytes)1856remlckplt.JPG (56585 bytes)1856remmrk.JPG (64654 bytes)1856remsght.JPG (48449 bytes)1856remopn.JPG (58384 bytes).69 cal. Model 1816 musket originally produced in flint and in the late 1850s Remington Firearms Co. was given a contract to convert these old out-dated flint muskets to the "then current" Maynard Tape Primer System.  This example has nice metal just starting to gently grey with age and has lockplate markings of "Remington Arms Co. - 1857 - U.S.".  The Maynard Tape Primer System still works perfectly and the musket still has nice deep rifling.  The musket has nice wood and the action still works as well as when it was new.  The musket was rifled and fitted with a long range site by Remington, but the musket was fired in competition in the late 1960s and at that time was equipted with a "more precision" long range site.  This is a nice Civil War Firearm that would - no doubt - still be deadly today.--$1,295.
  21. pdrhrn.JPG (45203 bytes)pdrhrncrvg.JPG (50472 bytes)Massive HUGE 1840 era 14 inch long and 3 inches across Powder Horn.  The horn remains in very nice condition and has ornate designs carved into both top and bottom.  Many young Confederates left home in 1861 carrying a Fowling Rifle and a Powder Horn just like this.--$175.

  24. 1863muir.JPG (21855 bytes)1863muirbrl.JPG (28510 bytes)1863usmuirlckplt.JPG (58493 bytes)1863usmuirmkr.JPG (84126 bytes)1863usmuirdte.JPG (72839 bytes)1863usmuirdte2.JPG (72877 bytes)Very sought after .58 cal. William Muir and Co. contract .58 cal. 3-band percussion rifled musket.  The metal is overall clean just beginning to darken with age with lockplate markings of "Wm. Muir - Windsor Locks - 1863 - U.S." and the barrel has a similar patina and has a matching "1863" date.  William Muir had a contract for 30,000 muskets during the years of 1863 and 1864.  The metal has sharp - clear marks and the action is about as crisp as the day it was made.  The original ramrod - long range site - and both sling swivels all remain intact, and it retains lots of original rifling.  The wood is quite nice as well with a visible inspector cartouche still remaining.  Most any Civil War collector would like having this musket on his wall.--$1,650.SOLD
  25. tool.JPG (75085 bytes)Original folding musket tool correct to display with any of the Models of Springfield or contract percussion muskets.  An excellent compliment to display with your musket.--$65.

CASED LONDON COLT NAVY MODEL REVOLVER.  The revolver is serial number "38480" and is all matching except for the wedge which is an old replacement.  This is very sought after " early 1850s" production and was very likely "C.S." carried considering that it is extremely early production and surfaced in the deep South.  The revolver is clean with crisp action and some cylinder scene remaining.  The case is in nice condition and is an original Civil War era case.  In the case is an original .36 cal. double cavity Colt bullet mold - an original tin for caps, - and an original brass powder flask.  Any "London" Colt Navy is rare to find, but a CASED London Navy is nothing less than SUPER-RARE to find.--$3,495.
  27. 1862sprngfld.JPG (39262 bytes)1862sprngfldbrl.JPG (27365 bytes)1862sprngfldclose.JPG (61096 bytes)1862sprngflddte.JPG (75426 bytes)1862sprngfldmrk.JPG (76494 bytes)1862sprngfldusmrk.JPG (50255 bytes)Considered by many to be the most representative weapon of the American Civil War.  This is the .58 cal. Model "1861" Springfield 3-band percussion rifled musket.  The lockplate is marked "U.S. - Springfield - 1862" and the musket has a thick "never cleaned" attic brown patina from tip to tip.  This musket is out of a Pennsylvania estate sale, and remains just as found.  If you'd like a musket on your wall with LOT'S of stories to tell - This will suit perfectly {and has an excellent chance to have been right there at Gettysburg, PA.}--$1,295.

  29. 1859twrlckplte.JPG (70206 bytes)1859twrlckpltecrn.JPG (59821 bytes)1859twrlckplterev.JPG (71324 bytes)1859twrlckpltedate.JPG (67535 bytes)Very - very hard to find when you need one.  Perfect condition early date "1859" Enfield-Tower lockplate and hammer assembly with all the parts intact in the reverse and works perfectly with nice crisp half cock and full cock.  If you have a nice Enfield musket, but with a worn or pitted lockplate - this will make all the difference in the world in the quality of your musket.--$195.

"New Jersey" marked Trenton 3-band percussion rifled musket.  The metal is nice and smooth - just beginning to darken with age.  The lockplate is marked "U.S.-Trenton-1863" and the barrel is marked "N.J.-1864" which is the standard marking found on New Jersey issued Trenton muskets.  The musket retains lots of rifling, and the action is about as crisp as when issued.  It's wood is very nice with just the normal small dings from actual field service.  This is a nicer musket than most you see now days.--$1,650.
  32. 1863lg&ybutt.JPG (36079 bytes)1863lg&gbrl.JPG (30236 bytes)1863lg&yclose.JPG (51639 bytes)1863lg&ydte.JPG (80932 bytes)1863lg&yname.JPG (47127 bytes)Fresh out of the attic "1863" date .58 cal.

  35. Very nice condition original .577 cal. Enfield musket tompion.  A fantastic final touch for your nice Enfield musket.--$65.
  36. Nice smooth chocolate brown attic patina on the metal of this .69 cal. Model 1842 smoothbore 3-band Springfield musket.  The lockplate is marked "U.S. - 1848 - Springfield" and the action still works well with a good strong spring.  The stock is quite attractive with a visible inspector cartouche and just the normal small dings and marks of service.  I just purchased this musket out of a North Carolina estate dating all the way back to the 1940 - 1950s era.  This is a weapon with that slick brown patina that some tasteful, gentle cleaning would make look significantly nicer.--$1,450.
  37. Attractive .69 cal. Potsdam musket dated "1826".  This one is out of an Ohio estate sale and has a smooth uncleaned attic patina.  A good number of these were purchased by the Governor of Ohio to arm troops from the state in early 1861 - some are even "OHIO" marked, but this one is unmarked.  The Ohio guys quickly realized that the rifled .58 cal. Springfield muskets were much better and more accurate and these ancient old muskets were soon replaced.  Confederates were also able to get some of these, and they used them until they were able to get the much superior and preferred .577 cal. Enfields.  This is a nice looking "early Civil War" weapon.--$895.
  38. .69 cal. Prussian Musket which was purchased and imported early in the war by the Governor of Ohio for the issue to Ohio troops as they marched off to war in 1861.  These muskets fired an absolutely massive projectile, and they were very quickly found to not be as accurate and serviceable as the smaller cal. Springfield muskets.  Over the years as relic hunters we have learned that when you recover the huge Prussian projectiles that you are certainly in an Ohio camp and could very well be about to recover an "OVM" beltplate.  This particular musket is marked "Potsdam" and dated "1837."  Although the musket was brought in to the shop by a local family, it was learned that the family's ancestry was not unexpectedly out of Ohio.  It has a smooth, dark, uncleaned patina and will display very nicely.--$975.
  39. Quite scarce .58 cal. "Providence Tool Co." - 1863 date Model 1861 3-band contract rifled musket.  This musket shows clear signs of having really been carried A LOT.  The metal has a smooth dark, attic brown patina with lockplate markings of "Providence Tool Co. - Providence, R.I. - 1863".  The markings are all visible, but worn down quite a bit from use.  The wood shows lots of use as well with corners rounded and all the normal bumps and bruises of a carried weapon.  The inspector's cartouche is worn, but you can still faintly make it out.  It is missing the rear sling swivel and has a "home grown" rear site.  This is a good, honest rare contract Civil War musket that without question "Saw The Elephant".--$1,150.
