Original 1864 Dated Civil War Parkers' Snow of Meriden Connecticut Military Rifle
Click on an image to enlarge

This is one of the tougher to find Civil War military contract rifles. This is the version that was made by the firm of Parker, Snow & Co. of Meriden, Connecticut. It is clearly maker marked on the lockplate by the maker and also has the production location. Behind the hammer it has the production date of 1864 clearly stamped into the metal. The lock mechanics catch crisply on each position. The barrel is full-length with the inspector's stamps still visible at the breech of the barrel. It has the original front present and the rear sight is present with two sight leafs still hanging on. It is missing both of the original sling swivels underneath the gun and someone has crudely added a replacement front swivel. Under the barrel it has the replacement modern made ramrod that is the correct design with the swelled shank. The stock has a very attractive deep dark look to the walnut. According to Flayderman's guide there were only 15,000 of these Parkers' Snow rifles made from 1863 to 1864. This is a good looking original Civil War .58 caliber rifle by the Parkers, Snow Company.
