This Civil War Longarm is a .58 caliber Springfield Model 1863, Type 1, single-shot muzzleloader in complete, original condition. It has a brass patchbox as well as a 6th corps badge on the side of the buttstock. The Springfield M1863 Type 1 musket was a government arsenal product from Springfield, Massachusetts. This 1863 model was a new design without barrel band springs only used for one year.

All gunmetal is clean and exhibits a nice dark patina. Lock surface wears a dark mottled patina with honest age and wear. "1863” stamped behind the hammer. Lock markings with the "Eagle / U.S. / SPRINGFIELD” are sharp and clear in front of the hammer. The distinctive "S” shaped hammer with its beveled edges has the same smooth patina as the rest of the lock plate components. Breech area of the barrel shows the date "1863” on the top facet. Proofmarks are on the barrel facet. Original nipple and rear sight.

Mechanics are crisp. Bore is dark looks to not been cleaned cannot see rifling. This type musket was produced without barrel springs. The three screw-tightened barrel bands are correct and in place…although two are upside down. Retains its original steel straight-shank ramrod that has the threaded tip. Black walnut stock is good and appears never to have been cleaned. Has the usual dings and scratches normal with age and use. The buttplate is stamped "US”.
