Description: Available - Parkers Snow & Co. Rifle in the massive .58 Miller Rimfire. These conversions were state of the art at the time. With an excellent bore and rifling, if you can find the ammo, I would not hesitate shooting this one. A great addition to anyone's Civil War collection. Extra pictures available on request. Below is a bit of info on this extraordinary rifle.

In January of 1862, James Mulholland, superintendent of the Reading Railroad, received a federal letter order for 58,000 .58 caliber Model 1861 Springfield rifled muskets. In February the order was reduced to 25,000. In June of 1862, he signed a contract with Parkers’ Snow & Co. to produce the guns. William H. Miller, with twenty years of gun manufacturing experience, was hired to supervise gun production, and his younger brother, George W., with ten years gun manufacturing experience, was hired to produce the locks. Converting the Cherry Street machine making and foundry operation into a gun works took time, and the first 5,502 rifles with “Parker Snow & Co.” and “1863” stamped on the locks were not completed until October 31, 1863.

The balance of that contract was not made by Parker and may have been assigned to Savage Revolving Firearms Co. An additional contract for 15,000 rifled muskets was signed with Parkers’ Snow & Co. on September 28, 1863. All 15,000 guns were completed and are marked identical to the first Parkers’ Snow & Co. rifled muskets, except that “1864” is stamped on the locks of these guns.
