(MAKE AN OFFER) S174H, Converted from a 58 caliber Civil War musket, into a 50-70 government caliber breech loader. Originally in 3 banded length, many were shortened to 2 band length at the armory and issued on the western frontier, just before the advent of the 45-70 models which replaced them a few years later. This specimen has been further altered by having a 10.5" incision professionally cut into the barrel at top, right through to the bore, for some unknown purpose (probably experimental at factory, then surplussed out after no longer needed) so this one is a "sleeper", awaiting discovery, complete with firing pin and fully functional, so it was designed to fire something, maybe a blank cartridge? Retains original musket ramrod. 29" barrel and 48" overall length. Has been nickle plated throughout, indicating it's post military application as a marching, or parade gun for club service, where many of these went after surplus sales dumped them unto the public mainstream. Fine barrel, both sling swivels intact, dated 1866 on breech block. You figure this one out, or just be content to keep it and baffle the "experts" and make them look stupid. Of course, if anyone really knows what this was used for, won't you please tell us? Missing only part of the screw that holds the breech block into the receiver. All original, ship weight is 14 pounds. SAFETY NOTICE: We do not sell firearms, only collectible antiques, if you shoot them, it's at your own risk and we are not liable for anything you do.
