F98. M1816 -CONFEDERATE CONVERSION MUSKET - M1816 BAYONET: This is a great example of a classic conversion musket carried by Southern troops with a US over SC marked M1816 bayonet! The gun is in great condition overall! The metal mostly has a smooth even light brown patina. The stock is original and retains 98% of the original finish with some bumps and dings, and a small chip near the barrel tang. The lock-plate retains the original 1836 date, but the US and maker names were buffed down during the conversion, indicating a good possibility it is a Confedeate conversion. On the left side of the stock you can see the faint remains of the painted number 27. There were 37 units combined in the North and South that used the number 27. Of this total, there were fifteen 27th Confederate regiments. On the underside of the barrel it is marked "LXXIX" and where the barrel and bolster are welded it is marked "48 X X 48". These markings are common on Confederate arsenal altered and repaired muskets. I beleave the ram-rod is a replacement and not period, but it has a nice matching patina. It is classic examples of a conversion musket compete with a Confederate conversion! It is a nice musket with pretty good eye-appeal!$1995.00
F105. AUSTRIAN M1851 CARBINE - TYPE II: This is an Austrian M1851 Carbine - Type II complete with the unusual two ring sling arrangement and raised cheek piece common to many Austrian arms. The stock is in outstanding condition with the letter "W" on the right side. The action is strong, and works in both half and full cock positions. The barrel is marked and the bore has strong lands & groves. This one was not designed to have a ram-rod, which was carried separately. The M1851 carbine has long been considered an early war Federal import.$1175.00
F118. AUSTRIAN M1851 CARBINE - TYPE I: This is an Austrian M1851 Carbine - Type I with a raised cheek piece common to many Austrian arms. The stock is in outstanding condition. The action is strong, and works in both half and full cock positions. It does not have the two carry rings. The barrel bore has strong lands & groves. This one was designed to have a ram-rod. The M1851 carbine has long been considered an early war Federal import.$1195.00
F113. CONFEDERATE - CONVERSION MUSKET: Because of the unique design of the hammer on this Confederate Conversion musket, it is believed to have come out of either North Carolina or Georgia. Confederate Conversion muskets are one of my guns! They speak to the fact about how the South adapted for war. The hammer is a design often seen on guns from North Carolina and Georgia. The bolster is very crude with no brass around the gap in the metal. When you remove the barrel, you can see how crude the work is on the bolster. Normally, the bolster is on a separate piece, which is spliced to the barrel, but here it is not. Also, you can see the Roman numeral IIII commonly associated with Confederate arsenal alter and repaired muskets. These Roman numerals also appear on each of the barrel band mounts. The lock functions properly in both half and full cock, and the original ram-rod has matching patina.$1195.00
F114. CONFEDERATE ARSENAL CONVERSION MUSKET: This musket is a Confederate arsenal conversion musket, which is in great untouched attic condition. It originally was a M1816 flintlock and you can see the Springfield mark and an eagle head on the lock plate. The drum bolster is crudely configured, and the hammer almost has a blacksmith made look to it. All metal parts have the same aged patina, and the stock matched as well. Under the middle band you can see a period arsenal repair to the stock. Even the original ram rod has the same matching patina. Confederate conversion muskets are a good buy since they are more affordable, and underscore the make-do disposition of the Confederate war machine.$995.00
F117. M1816 - CONFEDERATE - CONVERSION MUSKET: This is an outstanding example of a Confederate converted M1816 musket. The lock, bolster are very unique and not of a Northern design. In fact, when you remove the barrel and the lock you will find the Roman numeral III marked on several parts. It is on the wood under the lock, on the underside of the barrel, and on three of the internal lock parts. This was a common practice associated with many Confederate repaired and altered musket. The ram-rod has a cork screw twist that is often seen in other Confederate muskets.$2700.00
F120. PLYMOUTH RIFLE: This is a Plymouth Rifle produced by Whitney and dated 1864. The rifle is complete with its original rear site, ram-rod, and all factory parts. The metal has an even brown patina and has never been cleaned, and the stock has no issued. The sling swivels are both present, but the front one is frozen. The lock works in both half & full cock, and the plate is dated 1864, and the US and Whitneyville marks are faint; however, I do not see an eagle stamp and am not sure if one was ever there. The tang on the barrel has the serial number 9989, and there is still good rifling in the bore. This rifle was designed with a rifle lug for either a saber bayonet made by Collins or the Dahlgren Bowie bayonet knife, and many of these bayonets had to be fitted to the gun. It is hard to find one, especially a Dahlgren Bowie, which will fit. I have a Dahlgren Bowie that appears to have been tooled to fit this rifle, and it is showed attached to the rifle in the last photo. It goes on with ease and is a perfect fit. The information on that knife is listed separately for sale "U510" and if purchased with this rifle, I can make a package price.$1850.00
F121. M1816 - CONVERSION MUSKET: This is a great example of a M1816 Conversion musket which were in arsenals bot North & South at the beginning of the Civil War. The gun is in very good condition overall with great untouched patina! The metal has a smooth mellow brown patina on all metal parts and has never been cleaned.. The stock is original with some bumps and dings, but no damage. The lock-plate retains the original Springfield 1827 markings, but the Federal Eagle was removed during the Conversion. I am told the bolster is similar in designs to an HP conversion. Many of the conversion parts are marked "DD" to include the bottom of the barrel, the lock and the top barrel band. The ram-rod is not original.$1395.00
F122. CONFEDERATE SINCLAIR, HAMILTON & CO. MARKED ENFIELD – ARSENAL REPAIRED STOCK: This is a great example of an untouched out of the attic Confederate marked Enfield rifle-musket with a Confederate arsenal repaired stock. The lock is marked with a Crown rear, and 1862 Tower forward of the hammer. The Sinclair, Hamilton & Company mark on this gun is a Crown over S H / G 3. After years of research and comparison to other identified and know Confederate Enfield muskets, the Crown over S H / G 3 is now considered 1 of 4 known markings use by Sinclair, Hamilton & Company. Additionally, and thought faint, you can see the outline of the I.C. oval cartouche on the stock flat opposite the loc. This mark is usually found on Sinclair, Hamilton & Company marked guns as one of their inspector marks. What really makes this gun a one-of-a-kind gem is the arsenal repaired stock. As you can see the stock was broken, but repaired using an iron plate and straps & screws to make the gun operational. This work prevented the use of a real sling swivel. Such work would not be done on a Union gun. The patina on the wood around the repair shows its great attic condition. Also, the original rear site was lost during the war and never replaced. Finally, the Sinclair, Hamilton & Company mark is forward of the butt plate tang. If you are looking for a unique Confederate Enfield to add to your collection,this is it! P.S. Original bayonet included.$2400.00
F124. MOORE “M” ENFIELD RIFLE MUSKET with ORIGINAL MOORE BAYONET. This is a very desirable version of the Civil War Enfield pattern rifle. It is the one made in New York City by the firm owned by J.P. Moore. For years these were thought to be Confederate, but recent information has proved that it is made by Moore of New York. Moore used the style look of the 1853 pattern Enfield rifle as a base for the design of this gun and even imported some parts. This one has the English made barrel that they say were imported by the Colt Company. You can still clearly see the *25*25* stamp at the breech of the barrel that states that it is .577 in caliber. The barrel is full-length and has the original front and rear sights intact, and the ramrod is original and full-length. This nipple might be replaced. The action still works crisply in all positions. It has the 1863 production date and the shield stamp with the "M”. The walnut stock has a rich dark tone all over with sharp corners and a beautiful attractive look. It has original sling swivels and they both pivot. This is an attractive looking desirable Enfield pattern rifle made by Moore & Company and the patina is perfect. What makes this one even rarer is it has the original Moore bayonet. The standard British bayonets were not designed for this rifle. Moore bayonets were unique to the rifle, and each had a notch cut into it so it would fit the gun. Without this notch the bayonet would not properly fit. Additionally, Moore bayonets are totally unmarked. Here is a rare opportunity to own a rare Civil War musket complete with an even rarer bayonet. $2650.00
F127. CONFEDERATE – BRITISH PATTERN 1842 MUSKET: This musket came out of a North Alabama estate and was Confederate carried. It has a Confederate arsenal repair to the stock, and the lock plate has Roman numerals associated with Southern repaired firearms. Confederate purchasing agent Caleb Huse reported the purchase of 21,040 British muskets, which were likely surplus weapons decommissioned from the British military to include this smooth-bore 69 caliber musket. It was the last regulation smooth bore musket produced for the British Army. The barrel is secured with three flat keys and the swivel screw. Two of the flat keys are missing the head, and there the holes were fill in at a Confederate Arsenal. The front site acts as a bayonet stud, and the plain notched dovetailed rear sight is brazed to the barrel. The lock is of the familiar Enfield design, and it is maker marked Lacy & Co. London. When removed you can see the arsenal Roman numeral XXII, and lock action works correctly. However, when the lock is in place, it does not hold in the full-cocked position. The stock is solid, but you can see the Confederate Arsenal repair on the right side, and a crack on the left. The ram-rod is original to the gun. If you have been waiting to have a nice Rebel musket in your collection that is affordable, this is it.$995.00
F128. CONFEDERATE KENTUCKY IDENTIFED 1853 ENFIELD MUSKET: This Model 1853 Enfield Musket is identified to Private H. W. Jones of Company "G" 3rd Kentucky Mounted Infantry. This identification is made from the unique identifying Cross associated with the 3rd Kentucky Infantry. It is carved into the stock with the soldiers initials "W.H.J." Records show H. W. Jones name on unit muster-cards up until April 1864 with an unspecified desertion date sometime before the command was mustered out. In addition to the carved cross and initials, there are additional carvings and marks on the musket confirming it as a Confederate carried Enfield, and one that saw extensive combat! The 3rd Kentucky Infantry Cross and the initials "W.H.J." are carved on the left side (cheek side) of the stock, and on the opposite side is a carved Confederate battle flag. On the left side of the stock just forward of the lock screws are carved 7 "X's" most likely indicating the number of engagements. Also, the brass trigger guard is decorated with 15 hash-marks and the same cross design as on the stock. The original site was period replaced by a blade-site, which is crude in design and obvious Confederate. Finally, the rifling groves were shot out and are now smooth, which is like so many heavily use Confederate muskets. It is100% complete with all original parts and the period Enfield leather sling. The lock is marked CROWN and Tower 1862 and properly works in half and full cock. All the barrel bands have matching patina as does the barrel, and the ramrod is original to the gun. On the underside of the stock near the trigger strap is a double stamped CROWN S/HC (Sinclair, Hamilton & Co.) with the over stamped letters T M (meaning unknown at this time). Faint, but there. Documentation included.$2700.00
F134. CONFEDERATE JS MARKED ENFIELD - ID'ed 62nd VIRGINIA INFANTRY: This Confederate JS marked 1853 Enfield musket is in great condition with beautiful patina. On the underside of the stock you will find the JS (anchor) mark, which can be seen without magnification. The lock plated has a CROWN and Tower 1862 on it, and it works perfectly in both half and full cock, but has no firing nipple. On the left side of the stock is a carved design of unknown meaning. The original rear site is long gone, but the barrel still has strong rifling.
During the Civil War, many Confederate soldiers would carve their initials onto a musket, but seldom can we identify the owner unless there are additional unit markings. In this case, the musket not only has the soldier’s initials, but we know the exact regiment and company. On the top of the brass butt plate it is stamped “Co. D 62” and the letters “JAW” are stamped on the opposite side from the lock. These identifying marks make it easy to narrow the search, and there is only one Confederate soldier matching these markings : Corporal James A. Wilson, Company D 62nd Virginia Infantry. He enlisted on 8/20/1863 at Rockingham County, Virginia and was later wounded in battle on 5/15/1864 at the battle of New Market, VA. Records show he was sick 9/25/1864, but no further records are on file. $2800.00
F137.REMINGTON NEW ARMY REVOLVER: This Civil War period Remington New Army revolver is in outstanding condition with the original blue finish taking on a brownish patina. It is not military inspected and considered a civilian version, which often were privately purchased by soldiers and officers. The serial number is 44463, which dates it to November 1863. As an early war time gun you would expect lots of wear, but that is not the case. The grips are in near mint condition; the nipples are all original and perfect; the action is tight, and the bore is in great condition. I have seen other guns of equal quality selling for $2500 plus, but I got this right and have kept the price low.
F138. REMINGTON NEW ARMY REVOLVER: This Civil War period Remington New Army revolver is in outstanding condition with lots of original blue finish and some brownish patina. It is military inspected D in the trigger guard; R on the side of the frame W on the cylinder; C on the take-down rod, and 3 on the barrel. The serial number is 10980, which dates it to February 1863. No cartouche visible on the grip because it has been checkered by the soldier who carried it. The grips are in great condition; the nipples are all original and perfect; the action is tight, and the bore is in great condition. $2250.00
F139. BARNETT MODEL 1853 ENFIELD - CONFEDERATE USED: This is a Barnett London model 1853 Enfield rifle musket. It is void of any British inspection marks, and is an example of one exported to America during the Civil War. I have examined it closely and cannot find any marking indicating it was purchased by the South, but as soon as you see the replaced rear site, there is no doubt it was carried by a Confederate soldier. The stock is in great shape no major issued. All parts are original to include the ram-rod. As is common with many heavily used muskets, the wood behind the nipple is burned out. In this case, there is a period repair. The lock is fully functional in both half & full cock. The bore needs a little cleaning, but still has strong rifling. Here is your chance to own a Confederate carried Barnett Enfield rifle at the fraction of the cost of others. $1350.00
F140. STARR MODEL 1858 ARMY REVOLVER: This is an excellent example of the unique Starr Model 1858 Army, which functions both double & single Action. . While the design was innovative and way before its time, the self-cocking mechanism was delicate and expensive and lead to the Starr company to drop the model in preference to a cheaper and more robust single action only design, the Model 1863. Although referred to as a "double action" revolver, the large trigger actually only cocked the hammer and rotated the cylinder, it did not fire the gun. Pulling the large trigger all the way to the rear pressed a very tiny recessed trigger that actually released the hammer to fire the gun. During the time it was produced, approximately 22,000 Starr M-1858 Army revolvers were produced, with about 16,100 going to fill US government contracts. The remaining production (about 6,000 or about 27%) were sold commercially to the public. This particular gun is most likely one of those government contract models. The cartouches on the grips are worn off, but the typical US sub-inspector stamps on the primary sub-assemblies of the gun.
The gun is a 6 shot, .44 caliber revolver with a 6" barrel. The action is very crisp and works well. The gun is mechanically tight and times and locks up perfectly. The serial number 2596 is readily visible on upper and lower sections of the frame, the cylinder and face of the hammer. The US Sub-inspector initial W appears on the frame.
The frame is crisply and clearly marked on the right side: STARR ARMS Co. NEW YORK and on the left side: STARR'S PATENT JAN. 15. 1856. The bore is brilliant and in appears unfired and shows sharp rifling and original bluing, the percussion cones (nipples) are all in excellent, crisp condition. The cylinder chambers appear un-fired and are perfect as well. The barrel retains about much original blue in streaks with a mix of smooth gray-brown patina. This odd finish wear is typical of Starr’s, as their finishes tended to flake over time and present odd wear patterns. The frame retains about much bright brilliant blue finish. The most finish wear appears on the very top of the frame and barrel. The cylinder retains roughly 80% original blue, mixed with a gray-brown patina, and the grip frame retains about 10% blue, faded to a smooth gray-brown patina. The screws and the tiny recessed trigger retain about 90%+ vivid fire blue and are truly striking in appearance. The hammer has a smooth brown patina. The oil finished wood grips are in great condition with only some minor light handling marks, but no visible cartouches.
Overall this is a great M-1858 Starr Army and would be an excellent addition to any Civil War era handgun collection. $2850.00
F141. STARR MODEL 1858 ARMY REVOLVER - MILITARY INSPECTION MARKES AND CARTOUCH MARKS ON THE GRIPS: This is a great example of the unique Starr Model 1858 Army, which functions both double & single Action. While the design was innovative and way before its time, the self-cocking mechanism was delicate and expensive and lead to the Starr company to drop the model in preference to a cheaper and more robust single action design, the Model 1863. Although referred to as a "double action" revolver, the large trigger actually only cocked the hammer and rotated the cylinder, it did not fire the gun. Pulling the large trigger all the way to the rear pressed a very tiny recessed trigger that actually released the hammer to fire the gun.

The remaining production (about 6,000 or about 27%) were sold commercially to the public. This particular gun is one of those government contract models. The cartouches on the grips are strong, and there are US sub-inspector stamps on the primary sub-assemblies of the gun.
The gun is a 6 shot, .44 caliber revolver with a 6" barrel. The action is very a little soft, but works well in both single & double action. The gun is mechanically tight and times and locks up perfectly. The serial number 21736 is readily visible on upper and lower sections of the frame, the cylinder and face of the hammer. The US Sub-inspector initial appears on all over the gun.
The frame is crisply and clearly marked on the right side: STARR ARMS Co. NEW YORK and on the left side: STARR'S PATENT JAN. 15. 1856. The bore needs to be cleaned, but you can see strong rifling. The percussion cones (nipples) are all in excellent, but one may be replaced. The barrel has a mix of smooth brown patina with traces of original blue as does most of the gun with more blue on the main frame.
Overall this is a great M-1858 Starr Army and would be an excellent addition to any Civil War era handgun collection. $1750.00
F142. FORT DONELSON, TN - DOUBLE IDENTIFIED CONFEDERATE & UNION CAPTURED M1853 ENFIELD MUSKET: This M1853 Enfield musket started the Civil war as a Confederate imported musket and can be identified as such by the Inspector initials I.C. on the flat panel opposite the lock-plate. These letters are the inspection marks for Isaac Curtis. The gun was issued to Private Solomon Dice of the 30th Tennessee Infantry and he carved his name on the underside of the stock left of the trigger (S. DICE).
Private Dice fought and was captured at Fort Donelson, TN and made a POW. Obviously, the musket was taken from him and eventually ends up in the hands of Private William G. Abbott, 57 Illinois Infantry; he too was present at the Battle of Fort Donelson. The musket was either a war trophy or just issued to Abbott after the Confederate defeat, and he would also carve his name W. Abbott on one side of the stock and put his first two initials “W G” on the other side. Also affixed to the musket is a small Federal Eagle shield commonly seen on Union muskets in the Western Theater. Private Abbott would go on to fight at the Battle of Shiloh shortly after which he was discharged for disability. Unfortunately, Confederate Private Dice would die as a POW at Camp Butler, Illinois on August 30, 1862.
The musket lock is marked TOWER 1861 and obviously was an early Confederate import. The gun is in outstanding condition with no crakes or breaks and the lock is fully functional. The ram-rob is original, but the nipple has been replaced, and all other parts are original to the gun. It is not often that a musket can be identified to a Confederate soldier and more rare when it can be identified to two soldiers who faced each other on the battlefield of this great war. What a find! Historical documentation included.
