Original Item: ALL SALES FINAL; no returns, refunds or exchanges. 100% Genuine Percussion Rifle Muskets of the P-1853 Pattern as used by British Forces and both Federal and Confederate Forces during the U.S. Civil War. Imagine it’s the day after Gettysburg, the ground is littered with discarded weapons, some serviceable but the great majority blown to pieces. Then imagine returning years later to find the remains still lying where they fell, now you are getting the picture. We do not charge extra for the rust, decay or the romance these antique weapons deliver.

We call these HALF RIFLES or PARTS GUNS because that’s just what they are, all the butts and various other parts are gone, blown off in combat if you like. We repeat, however, these remains are genuine remains and date from the mid 1800s.

We have had many requests to sell these incomplete, broken, battlefield pickup rifles so that they can be stripped down, used for parts, rebuilt, etc… Well, we listened, and have just a few of these available.

Manufactured before 1898 and therefore no Firearms License or Permit of any kind are required to purchase this incredible piece of history.
