1862 CS Richmond Rifled Musket, .58cal by Pedersoli

The C.S. Richmond was produced using the machines and equipment transferred from the Harper’s Ferry arsenal, closed on April 18, 1861 to Richmond, the Confederate Capital. Exactly on that occasion the Richmond State Armory was founded and replacing the Virginia Manufactory Arms. This gun was one of the most popular during the American Civil War, it was manufactured basing on the US 1855 Model with the Maynard tape igniting system. It is for this reason that the lock features that overhang on the upper side, which however during the years and having seen its uselessness, was lowered to simplify the works.

Except for the lock’s profile, the brass butt plate and the stock nose cap, the gun’s look cannot help to remember the Model US 1861, the corresponding infantry musket of the Northern troops, which looking at the hammer design is referable to the previous US 1855. The gun is equipped with two sling swivels, one fit under the mid band and the other one fit in front of the trigger guard. The stock is made of walnut. NSSA approved.

CS Richmond .58 cal December 3, 2012
Reviewer: D. L. from N. Carolina  
Own the Richmond 1862 .58 cal. and it's great. I read it is known for accuracy but was very surprised that I can hold 3" shot groupings at 80 yards. The rifle is fun to shoot and a work of art displayed on the wall.
