A very nice civil war used percussion rifle that appears to have all the correct and matching parts. No bayonet, but it does have the original ramrod. Function and lock up is excellent. Nipple is in good shape. Bore was visually checked with inspection camera and is in surprisingly excellent shape. New York based HG and Co.’s proofmark is located just in front of the buttplate with a small crown over the letters “SH” followed by “G1” underneath.  A Union inspector’s proof is also located on the left side of the stock in a small oval, initials are faint.  The barrel is stamped with proofs and gauge markings.

Excellent antique condition. Very nice brown patina on all metal. No repairs or major blems. No rust or corrosion. All hardware, swivels, plates, etc appear to be matching and original. Stock is excellent, free of any cracks or splits. A thorough cleaning is all she needs.
