PERCUSSION & FLINTLOCK LONG GUNS
Uberti 1858/1866 Remington Pattern Carbine - (Sn 1398xx) - .44 percussion with 18" octagonal bbl. Blue with brass trigger guard and buttplate. Case hardened hammer. Shows about new with box and papers. $575
+ U.S. Whitney Model 1841, "Mississippi Rifle", N.S.N., .54 Cal., 33" bbl., 1853 lock date. Shows between very good and fine. All iron components show thin gray and brown patina with some etching and pitting at breech and bolster. All markings on metal are fairly to very sharp. All brass furniture was lightly cleaned at some point, but has begun to tone down to a nice patina, even showing some crystal lattice returning to surfaces. The stock was also lightly cleaned and has had a very thin film of oil finish added. However, the cartouches are strong and legible, just filled. The ram rod is a brass replacement. Overall, a very nice example of this model. Good bore, good screws, and mechanically sound. All tools and spare nipple remain in patch box. $2779.
