Here's a rare find. These reproduction M1861 Special Model muskets were marketed under Colt's "Signature Series" in the 1990's. They were marketed as collector's pieces and featured several upgraded features not found on other Italian-made reproduction muskets, like American Walnut stocks.
This particular musket is in great condition and all set up for skirmishing. A tall shooter front sight has been installed on the barrel and filed for accuracy at 100 yds. A peep sight has been installed in the sight base, and a brass skirmisher's ram rod has replaced the original steel rod.
This musket is in great condition. The lock holds solid on both full and half cock. The stock is in excellent shape with no chips or cracks; and the barrel is excellent with no rust or pitting inside or out.
This musket could also be defarbed being being sent to its new owner. Simply give us a call or send us an email for more information.
