Click on an image to enlarge
This is an attractive 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, and barrel bands. The brass on these pieces have a gorgeous untouched honey color patina. This one has the manufacture date which is a clear 1852 on the lockplate to accompany the very desirable maker's mark of the famous company Remington. This is the same Remington Company that is so well known for their revolvers. These guns were made at the production location of Herkimer, New York and it is so marked on the lockplate. The action of the lock works well on all positions. All of the brass parts have an attractive look with a golden tone patina. The barrel is full length and you can see the traces of the correct inspector marks at the breech. The front sight is missing but it has the original rear "stud" style sight. The bore of the gun no longer has the original rifling. The original sling swivels have been removed long ago. The ramrod in the channel underneath the barrel is the correct style iron tipped version that was used on the Mississippi rifles that were altered to .58 caliber after 1855. The stock on this gun has a pleasing look with a fine grain to the walnut. On the flat of the stock opposite of the lockplate it has the inspector cartouche stamps still partially visible. This is where the government inspector approved the weapon for military use. Remington only produced 10,000 of these Model 1841 rifles on contract. Roughly half of them were later altered to accept bayonets for the state of New York. The other half appear to have been sent to southern arsenals by Secretary of War John B. Floyd immediately prior to the Civil War. Since this is the case, these unaltered Remington M1841 rifles have a strong southern association.This is a nice original "Mississippi" rifle from the famous Remington Company that could have been Southern used.
