CIVIL WAR Antique Remington Zouave 1863 Rifle

Only 12,501 Made for Union Army 1863-1865

Here we present an antique Remington Zouave Model 1863 Rifle-Musket, made in 1863 in Ilion, New York. Only 12,501 of these rifles were made on contract by Remington per Flayderman. These were also known as the “Harper’s Ferry Pattern” in official government parlance during the war. These were shorter rifles with thicker barrels than the mass-issued Springfield Models 1861 and 1863, of which millions were issued by the end of the American Civil War.

This specimen features 7-groove rifling, stout barrel walls, and a 33-inch barrel. The muzzle end of the barrel has a bayonet lug mounted on the right. Contributing to the overall appeal of the gun, and possibly the mysterious moniker “Zouave”, are the contrasting colors of the brass barrel bands, trigger guard, patch box, and butt plate with the dark bluing of the barrel. The lock was casehardened and marked “1863”, “Eagle/REMINGTONS/ILION, NY” and “US”. The left side of the barrel is marked “US/VP” and “STEEL/BH”. The cartouches are still very good and visible. The butt plate is marked “US”. It is certainly a handsome gun, and it would have stood out if seen next to a Springfield.

The overall condition is fine. The barrel retains nearly all of its original bluing. The markings are clear and legible. The percussion nipple has been brazed to the gun long ago. The walnut stock is near fine, with good cartouches. No ramrod included. The bore is very good. The action is strong.

Own the original! This is a legitimate antique and not a reproduction.

Barrel is 33 inches in length.

Caliber: .58 percussion

The bore is in very good condition. The action is strong.

Overall condition as seen in photos.

Here is an excellent opportunity to own a very nice, scarce Remington Zouave!
