  1. musket2.JPG (16289 bytes)musketbrl.JPG (8910 bytes)musketlckplt.JPG (177345 bytes)musketmrk.JPG (78874 bytes)musketbk.JPG (48683 bytes)Vmusketbkcls.JPG (56003 bytes)musketstar.JPG (61235 bytes) Very, very RARE "Tanner and Co." .69 cal. 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

Model 1849 "long barrel - 6 inch" Colt Pocket Revolver.  This is serial number "204947" which is MOST desirable HARTFORD "1861" production.  All the serial numbers match except the wedge which is an old replacement.  It has good action - a very good bore - and lots of original cylinder scene.  Every collection should have a nice original Civil War Colt revolver.--$975.
  3. 11pnfire.JPG (54932 bytes)11pnfirerev.JPG (50645 bytes)Really pretty 11mm French Pinfire revolver quite similar to the one carried by "Stonewall Jackson".  Pinfire revolvers were very popular with Confederate Officers and this one was very likely "C.S." carried.  It has original finish literally all over it and has beautiful intricate engraving.  The lanyard ring and the small ejector rod are often missing on these guns, but this one has both still intact.  The small cartridge loading door is often missing as well, and is indeed not present on this revolver.  I am including some original pinfire cartridges for display with the revolver, but they are a smaller size {to prevent a child from loading it up}.--$795.
  4. bltmld.JPG (60485 bytes)bltmldmrk.JPG (38378 bytes)Beautiful condition and quite rare style on this .577 cal. Enfield bullet mold.  The mold opens from the bottom rather than the typical sideways opening pattern.  In addition, this Enfield mold came out of the deep South and has the "25" mark that we all like to see on our imported Enfield muskets.  This will be a fantastic compliment to your Enfield musket.--$695.
  5. 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.

  7. 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.

"Metropolitan Arms Co." 6-shot "Navy Model" revolver.  Metropolitan Navy revolvers were made from 1864 through 1866 and were nearly exact copies of the .36 cal. Model 1851 Colt Navy revolver with a total production of only about 6,000 weapons.  Serial numbers range from 1 on up to about 7100 with a break in numbers for Metropolitan's production of a copy of the Colt Model 1861 Navy.  This example has an all matching serial number of 5751 {including the wedge} which is likely 1864 - 1865 production.  The revolver has crisp action - considerable cylinder scene remaining - and some original finish in recessed areas.  During the last couple years of the Civil War Metropolitan was a competitor to Colt for the .36 cal. Navy Revolver market.  This is as nice an example that I have seen in a long, long time.--$1,450.SOLD

  12. sprgfldsw.JPG (47612 bytes)sprgfldswrev.JPG (49937 bytes)sprgfldser.JPG (42454 bytes)sprgfldmrk.JPG (42749 bytes)Nice condition 6-shot  Smith and Wesson "No. 2 - Old Model Army" Revolver.  This one is serial number 23542 - which is most desirable 1862 - 1663 production.  The revolver has original Civil War era "cream colored bone like material" grips and is crisply marked "Smith and Wesson - Springfield, Mass."  This revolver is museum quality and would be a fine addition to any Civil War Display.--$1,450.SOLD

Model 1861 Springfield 3-band rifled musket.  The .58 cal. Springfield 3-band rifled musket is considered by many to be the most representative musket of the American Civil War.  The lockplate has a gently ageing grey-brown patina with markings of "U.S. - 1861 - Springfield" and the barrel has a nice thick - never cleaned - attic brown patina, and has decent rifling.  The original walnut stock is very nice as well with the normal small dings and marks of actual field service, and the soldier's initials "J.S." are neatly cut into the right hand side of the walnut stock.  The action is tight and still works perfectly, and the original ramrod - both sling swivels - and long range site all remain intact.  An original "1861" dated Springfield is VERY SCARCE to come by.--$1,650.SOLD

Springfield musket is considered to be the classic representative musket of the American Civil War.--$1,650.

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.

"E. Robinson" contract Model 1861 3-band rifled musket.  The lockplate is crisply marked "E.

Navy Revolver.  The grips show wear, but are not cracked or broken.  If you have a Colt .36 Navy with broken or missing grips - here is your chance to complete your weapon.  The grips show lots of wear and rounded corners, but are complete, and are out of the "Deep South" - and could have quite likely been C.S. carried.--$175.
  30. Very ornate and absolutely beautiful condition .44 cal. single shot 1840 - 1860 era percussion pistol.  The pistol has intricate inlay and beautiful silver accents.  It is maker marked "Mewis & Co."  These fine quality pistols were generally European made and private purchased by both Union and Confederate soldiers.--$950.
  31. Just in fresh out of a North Alabama estate - nice condition C.S. carried Pre-War single shot percussion pistol in it's brown leather hand stitched Confederate holster.  A beautiful Confederate rig at the price of a "middle-grade" Colt Pocket Model revolver.--$1,250.
  32. Exceptionally nice .58 cal. "Norris and Clements" 1863 date 3-band percussion Federal rifled musket.  The metal is very nice with a gently greying aged patina with lockplate markings of "S.N. and W.T.C. For Massachusetts - 1863 - U.S." and a deep, clear matching "1863" date on the barrel.  The eagle on the bolster is as crisp as new and the rifling will about cut your finger.  The original walnut stock is really pretty with 2 cartouches.  This is unquestionably a museum grade weapon.--$1,950.
  33. Excellent condition non-excavated Springfield combination musket tool - perfect to display with your original Civil War musket.  Also, an original non-excavated .577 cal. Enfield trigger block with trigger.  Both items only.--$65.
  34. Attractive attic brown-grey patina on this .28 cal. 6-shot Manhattan produced Pepperbox revolver.  These were produced between 1856 and 1860 and a number of these were actually carried in the American Civil War.  This revolver is "Manhattan" marked and retains good action and is nicely engraved.--$550.
  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.
