W626 VERY EARLY FIRST MODEL 1876 MUSKET

Item # W626

Hawaiian musket features on this gun with the cleaning rod half exposed on the left hand side of the fore wood as well as the flip up spring loaded rear sight. Serial numbers in the 3800 range. This gun was part of a small group of 76 muskets that were sent to Northwest India approximately 1878. This is the only one I have seen with this exact configuration. Quite a unique gun. It has the 2nd model thumbprint dust cover with correct sliding rail. Overall the gun is in excellent+ condition with about 90% slightly toning bbl blue and 75% toning receiver blue. Original wood has a considerable amount of original varnish with a few mars and dings. Sound with no splits or cracks. VG condition with correct carbine style buttplate as well as sling swivels. Crisp and tight mechanical condition. Hard to improve upon this early 76 musket.

Antique   $ 22,500.
