  • Description:

    This percussion piece is a pattern 1858 Naval Rifle with a Tower lock dated 1859 .  These rifles went into production in December of 1858.  The barrel is 33" with the 1100 yard sight.  This London built example shows the correct proofmarks (1838-68)  The barrel shows an overall petina finish with heavy corrosion in the area of the nipple.  The bore is obviously pitted.  This piece shows very good wood with a clear pimlico WO 1863 dated roundel and a class 2 mark.  With correct brass fittings and the sling swivel mounted on the trigger bow, there is a heavy military buff leather sling mounted on the rifle.  This piece is one of the scarcer short rifles and more difficult to locate regardless of the condition.  Antique- no permit required.
