Description: This HEAVY and RARE Civil War Sharpshooters rifle came to me thru my Grandmothers family...her ancestor was CSA Gen'l Braxton Bragg. How it came into his/her possession is accurately unknown other than conjecture. This rare rifle weighs over 16lbs. and still functions. It once had a long scope mounted and after the war it was recut as stated on the top flat of the barrel to install the fron & rear sights as shown...the rear mount IS original to the rifle when made.. Due to rust the bore needs reboring/reline. The octagon barrel measures 1-1/4inches across the flats ...the stock is near pristine with the exception of a chip on the upper R by butt. Overall length is approx. 47inches.This is a very rare rifle to find being used in the Civil War. It is sold as -is due to condition and age. I have seen these over the years sell for several thousands of dollars..at my age I am offering this at a VERY reasonable price of $1695.+ est.$50.00 due to size/weight. NO FFL etc. is required to ship or own. Thanks for looking..! All questions will be answered.

Rare WW Greener 12ga. shotgun like new GP Martini action.This rare weapon has (2)barrels.(1)is for upland birds/the other (1) is for amusement as best as I can tell..perhaps a line throwing cannon..? I have amused myself for about 20 years launching a Golfball at very high speed to a distance of 400+ yds.I use a 12ga.brass/plastic-paper hull and load with smokeless OR Black Powder & wad. I much prefer the black powder as it gives a tremendous report as in a cannon..w/lotsa smoke. Impressive as hell and very powerful.I rarely use the 34in.12ga. MINT hunting barrel.I have never seen another like this one. I am NOT objected to a trade and unsure how to proceed w/a trade +cash/enen exchange?? I value this weapon @$1200.oo I may be high..? But I believe I own one of very few made.US Postal M.O.preferred.
