Original item: One Only. During the U.S. Civil War the North manufactured over 700,000 M-1863 Percussion Rifles in .58 muzzle loading caliber. With the coming of breech loaders, the Government embarked on a Conversion of the M-1863 to the M-1870 Trapdoor breech loading rifle system in .50/70. Some over 10,000 of these M-1863 were converted before the U.S. Army standardized on the newly manufactured Springfield 1873 Trapdoor Rifles in .45/70.

The M.1863/1870 Conversions were obsoleted and have become very uncommon, as only a small percentage of the total 1863 production was converted.

The breech block is marked:
