Action is strong and smooth; bore is brilliant with sharp rifling; the gun has seen little actual use. This rifle was not a post-war cartridge alteration to a Civil War rifle-musket, but the first breech-loading cartridge arm made in quantity by a national armory. The breech units (designed for the .50-60-450 Joslyn RF cartridge) were supplied by Joslyn to Springfield Armory in early 1865, where they were assembled with new barrels, locks and stocks specifically made for this action. Of the 3,007 rifles made, Springfield then altered 1,600 to .50-70 CF, such as this example, with correct mixed serial numbers. Thus, they are rarely seen or offered for sale today. Est.: $900-$1,200. (Antique)
