    COLT MODEL 1860 ARMY REVOLVER – 1862 SERIAL NUMBER & MISSOURI ISSUED

    *********************************************************************************************

    F252. CONFEDERATE - PATTERN 1856 IRON MOUNTED RIFLE, NUMBERED RAMROD: This is a Confederate Pattern 1856 iron mounted rifle with a Confederate numbered ramrod, and its bayonet. It is original with all factory mounts and screws, and a Potts & Hunt London lock. The rear site is original and properly slides up & down. The ramrod is numbered 507, but there is no number on the gun. There is what appears to be a faint Sinclair, Hamilton & Company viewers mark near the trigger tang. On the underside on the gun is an opening in the stock, which may have been done by the soldier to drain water. The lock properly functions; all metal parts have matching patina, and the bore is shotout indicating heavy use. Also, note there are no sling swivels and where one would be to the rear, there is a screw. This is correct to this gun because it was original configured for the Royal Marine Corps before it was sold to the Confederacy. The bayonet fits perfect to the gun. $2750.00

    F259. SMITH & WESSON MODEL-TWO REVOLVER: One of the more popular Civil War period revolvers used by cavalry soldiers and officers was the Smith & Wesson Model-Two revolver. The Model Two Army was perfectly suited to the demands for a belt-sized pistol, which could be carried in the waistband or a small holster. It could be quickly loaded with the new waterproof metallic cartridge and proved ideal for the soldier. The timing was crucial, as the first guns reached the marketplace in June of 1861, only two months after the first shots were fired marking the beginning of the American Civil War. Orders rose so fast that by 1862 the company closed its order books, because they already had orders for more arms than they could produce in the next three years.  The gun used a small .32 rim fire caliber self-contained cartridge. This guns serial number, 11134 places in the range of the Type 4 version serial range 10627 - 40044; 1863. The gun has a 6-inch barrel and originally was blued, which is all gone leaving a gray-brown patina. The serial number matches on all parts to include the grip. The gun cylinder timing, and the trigger and hammer properly function, and the bore has strong rifling. Shipping is included with this price. $675.00

    F261. CLEANED & REPAIRED “A” “Q” & “Z” MARKED B FLAGG & Co. CONFEDERATE REISSUED MUSKETBeginning with the Severn Days Battle in 1862, weapons were salvaged and sent to Richmond to be cleaned, repaired and reissued. The Confederate Ordnance Bureau established a robust cleaning and repair (C&R) operation at the Richmond, Danville, Lynchburg Arsenals, and the Staunton Ordnance Depot.  Once a gun was serviceable, it would be inspected and marked with an inspector’s mark: “A”,”F”,”Q”,”T”, and “Z” an average of .22 inches in height, the same font, and located on the bottom of the stock forward of the trigger guard. For more information see “Captured & Collected” Confederate Reissued Firearms by CAPT Steven W, Knott. This musket is one of the early muskets recovered from a battlefield and sent to be Cleared and Repaired.

    The US M-1842 Muskets produced by Benjamin Flagg are amongthe rarest and most intriguing military long arms produced in the United States during the antebellum era. The guns are actually secondary Confederate arms, as all were delivered to the state of South Carolina, and were the forerunners of the South Carolina manufactured William Glaze & Company arms, as Glaze ordered the Flagg guns for South Carolina and then enlisted Flagg in the subsequent manufacture of his own arms. Originally, there were 100 muskets delivered with B. FLAGG & Co. locks. They had a German silver wrist escutcheon with a number engraved on it; a butt plate either blank or with a script US; and a smooth bore barrel. Several South Carolina infantry regiments were present at the battle of First Manassas and it is likely this musket was recovered and sent back to Richmond to be Cleaned and Repaired. As such, if can no longer be considered an original condition B Flagg musket, but a Confederate (C&R) reissued gun.

    This musket went thought the Clean & Repair (C&R) three times and it looks like the Flagg lock was fitted onto a different M-1842 stock and then a different barrel, which was rifled. Each time the gun entered the C&R process it was inspected before being reissued. I believe the first inspection mark was “A” because of its location matches other one-time C&R guns, next “Z” and finally “Q.” The B. Flagg & Co. lock’s action is crisp and very tight in both halt and full cock positions. I pulled the lock and the internal lock area is dark and undisturbed. Also, the bore is bright with strong rifling. and when the barrel bands are moved you see the bright metal that is expected with an unaltered musket.  This gun is extremely unique and rare with the B Flagg lock and being through the Confederate Clean & Repair process three times.  $3900.00
