U.S. Model 1841 "Mississippi" Percussion Rifle that was manufactured by the Harpers Ferry Armory in 1846. The Harpers Ferry Armory manufactured 25,296 Model 1841 rifles between 1846 and 1855. The Model 1841 Rifle achieved fame as the weapon used by the 1st Mississippi regiment commanded by Jefferson Davis at the battle of Buena Vista during the Mexican War and was extensively used by both Federal and Confederate armies during the Civil War. With its browned barrel, case-hardened lock, brass furniture and distinctive over-size patch box, the "Mississippi Rifle" is considered by collectors to be the best looking of all U.S. military percussion longarms. During it's period of use the Model 1841 Rifle was considered to be the best weapon of its type. This rifle, was re-bored from .54 to .58 caliber after the adoption of the .58 caliber hollow base, conical bullet ('Minie Ball') in 1855 and most were fitted with a steel tulip-head ramrod. This riflr retains the original brass tipped ram rod. The barrel has a brass front sight blade and retains the original fixed rear sight. The barrel has not been altered for a sword or socket bayonet. The barrel bands, trigger guard, side plate, patchbox and buttplate are brass. The stock is oil-finished black walnut. The lock plate is marked "HARPERS/FERRY/1846" in three vertical lines behind the hammer. A small Eagle and Shield motif above "U.S." is stamped ahead of the hammer. The "V/P" proof and inspection marks are stamped parallel to the bore. The "PW" inspection mark is stamped perpendicular to the bore and the "V/P" proof and inspection marks are stamped parallel to the bore. The initials "OC" are stamped on the buttplate, "WJ" is stamped on the lid of the patch box and on the trigger guard tang. "TG" is stamped on the upper barrel band.

The hammer and bolster have a dark, untouched, patina. The brass furniture has been polished within the last decade. The stock is very good with moderate handling wear and is free from cracks or repairs. The barrel surfaces are generally smooth with the exception of the expected flash pitting on the bolster and adjacent areas of the barrel. The barrel markings are light but legible. The lock plate has a silver-gray patina with some scattered, minor, pitting. The hammer and bolster have a dark, untouched, patina. The original US stamped rifle tool stamped "US 1846" is included which retain most of the original case hardened coloring.

This is a good looking example of an important Civil War rifle that was widely used by both Confederate infantry and cavalry throughout the Civil War.
