CONFEDERATE FAYETTEVILLE RIFLE
TYPE III
1863 DATE

This is a very nice Type III Fayetteville dated 1863 on the barrel and lock.  It has correct rear sight, front sight, bayonet lug, ramrod, etc.  The brasses are nicely patinaed.  The barrel and lock bear a light brown patina.  The barrel is clearly dated 1863  on the top.  The proof marks on the left barrel flat are faint, which seems to be characteristic of this production era.  The butt plate is marked CSA and the bands have the "U" present.  The stock is quite smooth with some chippage at the rear lock plate screw, opposite the lock with a clearly discernible cartouche.  The bore in this gun is really quite bright with strong rifling.  A little cleaning might even improve it beyond its currently impressive state.  The lock markings are typical and clearly discernible, to include the CSA below the Eagle.  There is slight burnout behind the bolster and action is strong and works perfectly.  Price $12,750.  SOLD!!
