This is an original and desirable "Mississippi" pattern rifle. This is officially known as the U.S. model 1841 rifle. They got their "Mississippi" nickname during the Mexican War when a regiment under the Command of Jefferson Davis of Mississippi used them with great effectiveness. They stand out from across the room because of all of the brass furniture they use. They have the classic brass patchbox, triggerguard, buttplate, barrel bands and even the tip of the ramrod has brass. This one has the manufacture date of 1847 on the lockplate to accompany the makers mark of the famous Philadelphia firm owned by George W. Tryon. According to Flayderman's guide, Tryon only made about 5,000 of these Mississippi rifles. This is a very nice date to have on one of these Mississippi rifles because it was manufactured during the Mexican war. These rifles are considered by many people, including myself, to be one of the most attractive weapons in U.S. military history. The action of the lock works on all positions. All of the brass parts have an attractive look with a golden honey color patina. The barrel is full length and it has the front and rear sights still intact. The front side is a small brass blade sight in the rear sight is the stud style sight. The barrel is in the original .54 caliber and you can see the original rifling. At the breech of the barrel, you can still see the inspector initials. Both of the sling swivels are present and it still pivots. It has iron tipped ramrod in the channel underneath the barrel that was used on these guns after 1855. On the flat of the stock opposite of the lockplate you can see both of the inspector cartouche stamps. These stamps are where the US government inspector approved the gun for military service. On the front of the shoulder stock it has the large brass patch box. This is an original and popular "Mississippi" rifle from the Tryon Company with the desirable 1840 Mexican War production date
