Description: In St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana, dead across the Ponchartrain from New Orleans, sits the little town of Covington. It is well populated with gun stores, over a dozen in the immediate area, many of whom have been kind enough to transfer for us and our buyers. In the 1970s, however, that was not quite the case, but Covington was ahead of its time because it had its own Air Gun store, with retired Delta Airlines Captain John J. Frost as Proprietor. Specimen in the photos comes from Mr. Frost’s estate. This is an excellent quality reproduction of the U.S. Army’s Battle Rifle of the 1860s, the 1861 Springfield. Manufacturer was Armi Sport of Fornaci, Italy, founded by the Chiappa family. From this rifle’s AC Italian Date Code, it was manufactured in 1977. Construction is entirely steel, correct brown / purple tone barrel finish with color casehardened forend cap, anchor bands, trigger unit, hammer, buttplate, and triple blade rear sight. Action Screws and ramrod are blue steel. Type is Percussion Rifle, caliber .58, with Winged Musket Cap style nipple. This rifle has 1:56, 3 groove rifling, made for .570 round balls or .577 Minie Balls. Stock is dark, well figured Italian Walnut. Barrel is 4 inches, with 3 stage steel sights. Weight empty is 10 pounds, with the center of gravity 6 inches forward of the rear sight. Surface detractions are negligible on this rifle. We do not believe it was ever fired, it is clean and excellent throughout. We rate it as Near Mint, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Replacement pricing on this rifle’s descendants is well over $1,000 apiece, and they aren’t 36 years old yet. We’re offering this attractive, collectable Armi Sport 1861 Springfield for only $ 659.00. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> $20 lower 48; $60 Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, USPS Priority Mail, insured with Delivery Confirmation.
