    F222. CONFEDERATE 1853 ENFIELD RIFLE - SINCLAIR, HAMILTON & COMPANY MARKED:  During the Civil War, a large proportionate of 1853 Enfield Rifle Muskets were supplied by the Sinclair, Hamilton & Company and are found with the following marks:

    This Confederate 1853 3-band Enfield is in fine condition with the Oval SCH mark.  This gun was discovered in Virginia and most likely was carried by a soldier from that state. This rifle has a dark blue barrel and mounts, and a wood has pleasing eye appeal. There is even a screw in the wood behind the nipple which appears to be orignal to the gun because it has period bluing with a little wear. The stock is maker marked WILLIAMSON BROTHERS, and the middle barrel band and lock are marks T. & W. W. Also, the inside stock near the barrel screw; the barrel and the lock are all marked H.C.

    The  Oval SHC mark is by the butt plate tang, and on the flat area opposite the lock, and between the top barrel band and the brass nose cap there is the silhouette of a large oval, but the SHC is worn and difficult to see.  This third mark is extremely rare! The rifle still retains the original rear sight, which still works, and there remains good rifling in the bore.  $1795.00

    F225. COLT 1851 NAVY REVOLVER – I & XI CORP BADGE INLAYS – 1863 SERIAL NUMBER: This Colt 1851 Navy Revolver is serial number 150452 which dates it to 1863. The serial number is matching on the wedge, cylinder, brass strap, lower received and push rod with no number on the barrel, and the top of the gun has the Colt markings. The cylinder scene is very strong. On the grips are mother-of-pearl inlays for the 1st & 11th Corps, and on the bottom of the brass are the initials D B R. Unfortunately, this is not enough information to positively identify the soldiers. That being said, the date of manufacture and the addition of the Corps badge inlays is significant to placing this gun on the battlefield for some of the major battles of the Civil War.  Looking at the history of both Corps, there is a very high probability this gun was carried at Chancellorsville and later Gettysburg. Who knows, it may have been used by an officer or a cavalry soldier attached to these 2 Corps. Maybe with more time D B R can be identified by doing a detained search of allunits attached to these two corps and cross referencing the soldier data base.$1800.00

    F226.  METROPOLITAN ARMS NAVAL REVOLVER: This Metropolitan Ames Naval Revolver was discovered in a Little Rock Arkansas home along with a Confederate Arkansas Toothpick D-Guard Bowie knife. The revolver is covered in 150 years a grease and has a dark brown/black patina. It has not been cleaned. The gun is in outstanding condition and is fully operational. The action is tight and the cylinder cycles with no problem; has all original nipples and a strong cylinder scene of the Battle of New Orleans. The gun is all original with matching serial number 3359 on all parts except the cylinder, which is 3209, but from looking at the patina it is obvious it is factory original to the gun. How this Union late war gun ended up in Little Rock Arkansas is unknown, but it looks great and fits both a Union and Confederate holster. $1900.00

    F230. ENFIELD PATTERN 1853, BIRMINGHAM SMALL ARMS: This is an Enfield Pattern 1853 3-band rifle musket, dated 1862. These were imported for use by both Union and Confederate soldiers and to tell the difference one must look at the markings on the stock.  This one was most likely imported by the North since there are no Confederate or British marks. On the underside of the stock is a Crown BSA mark for Birmingham Small Arms. There are no records for this mark on a Southern Enfield, but it is found on the rifles that went North. The gun shows wear indicating it was carried, but not abused. All metal parts have a nice even patina. It is complete with all barrel-bands, the ramrod, the nipple protector with chain. The bore is strong and the lock properly functions. This price includes shipping. $1495.00

    F231. CONFEDERATE CAVALRY SHOTGUN: This is a Confederate Cavalry Shotgun, which is documented in the book: Confederate & Southern Agent Marked Shotguns pages 94-95. It was retailed by S. Sutherland Richmond VA. The follow is the exact wording in the book.

    The straight grained walnut stock is checkered at the wrist only. A plain silver rectangular inlay is set in the top of the wrist. There is a brass ring two inches in diameter attached with an iron staple to the observe butt stock. All iron furniture is engraved in the same simple style as the locks. There is one barrel key with plan oval German escutcheons.

    The top rib is engraved “LONDON TWIST.” The bottom of the barrels are stamped with standard Brimingham proofs.

    This shotgun is 33.25 inches overall with 17.5-inch barrels. There are two small silver inlaid at the breach.

    The back action locks and hammers have simple scroll engraving and the lock plates have a decorative border. The lock plated are stamped in two lines behind the hammers, “S SUTHERLAND RICHMOND Va”. Note the musket size nipples inserted in the breech. $6400.00

    F232. CONFEDERATE ARSENAL REPAIRED BATTLEFIELD RECOVERED UNION RIFLE: During the Civil War, the Confederate military did not have a sufficient supply of weapons for their soldiers. As a result, they imported weapons from England, converted civilian shotguns and rifles for military use, and salvaged Union weapons recovered from battlefields. This rifle is a recovered Union rifle that was reworked at a Confederate arsenal and put back into service for the Southern Army.  It originally was an 1861 Bridesburg contract rifle dated 1862. There is a 6-point carved star with red inlays in the stock, which could represent the Union Army, VIII Corps, 3rd Division Badge or a Confederate badge. We know this is a Confederate repaired rifle because the Union army did not repair weapons like this. First the hammer is not original by Austrian; the original rear site was removed and replace with a blade site common to many Confederate repaired weapons. Also, the barrel-bands are not original to the gun and each is held in place with screws on both sides. Finally, the ramrod is a Confederate replacement with the pig tail end. This is truly a Confederate arsenal repaired gun reissued to a Confederate soldier.  Another thing I like about this gun is that it is not as expensive as a Confederate made gun or a Confederate Enfield. $1400.00
