The United States military adopted the percussion rifle in 1841. It was known as the 1841 Mississippi rifle. Considered by many to be the most handsome of all U.S. military muzzleloaders, this cap-and-ball rifle was held in high regard by shooters of the era. As one 1840’s frontiersman said of the 1841 Model, it was “a weapon I cannot too strongly recommend for every description of frontier service, from its great accuracy and little liability to get out of order—an important point in a country where no gunsmith can be found.” The Mississippi was also popular with early plainsmen, emigrants and other adventurers heading West. Many Mississippi Rifles were purchased from U.S. arsenals throughout the country and eventually were used in the California goldfields as a sidearm or hunting rifle. During the Civil War, the weapon was prized by Confederate soldiers and put to effective use by rebel riflemen. This original Mississippi rifle has a steel action plate, heavy military hammer, brass furniture and undamaged walnut stock which has just the bumps and bruises consistent with age and use. The metal work has even patina. The stock has the correct brass hinged patchbox which contains 3 moulded lead balls, a piece of cleaning cloth and a steel worm. The lock plate is crisply marked: ‘Windsor VT’ together with 1848 date and ‘Robbins & Lawrence’ together with ‘US’ (Army)". The brass butt plate tang is stamped "US" (Army). The barrel has factory inspector’s marks, a small brass blade fore sight & 1st type fixed 'v' notch rear sight. The rifled bore of the 33” round steel barrel has staining and residue consistent with age and use. The rifle measures 48 ¾” overall length. The rifle has its original wood ram rod with brass end cap and is fitted with buff leather sling. The weapon’s cocking and firing actions work perfectly.
