HARPER'S FERRY MODEL 1855 RIFLE. 58 caliber with standard 33" barrel. This is a rare early brass mounted Harper's Ferry model 1855 rifle that is quite possibly Confederate assembled. This gun is probably Confederate assembled in that there are no proofs or inspectors marks on any part of this gun with exception of the 1856 dated "USMR" model marked lockplate. Standard production on this rifle did not begin until 1857 and we're not sure if there is another 1856 dated rifle is known other than this "model".

 

Gun overall is very good. Barrel is gray, scattered areas of rust and pitting. Rifle bore is smooth and gray with only "ghosts" of rifling discernible. Bayonet lug with a key is a feature noted on a the 'Model' 1855 rifle now in the Smithsonian. Breech is devoid of any proofs and appears to have never had them. Lock does appear a bit better than rest of gun so it is quite possibly added - but it is an honest and rare brass mounted 1855 rifle and lock is unique. Clean out screw in bolster is replaced, as is nipple. Lock and hammer are silver/gray with traces of muted case colors, markings are crisp, as can be seen in photos. Brass hardware, including nosecap, bbl bands, trigger guard, buttplate and patchbox, exhibit yellow mustard colored patina. Stock is sound and solid overall with scattered small dings, dents and scratches and devoid of any inspector marks or cartouches. Patchbox mortise was cut for figure 8 sight.
