Scarce M1865 First Pattern Springfield Musket, First Allin Conversion, dated 1862 (.58cal)

One of 5000 Model 1861 percussion rifle-muskets converted by Springfield Armory to breech-loading .58 caliber rimfire rifles. The First Model Allin Conversion rifles are the first and most desirable of the .58 caliber 'trapdoor' conversions. The barrel has a bright finish, the breechblock receiver and single leaf rear sight had the black oil quenched finish and the hammer and lock plate are casehardened. The stock is oil-finished black walnut. The lock plate is dated "1862" behind the hammer and marked with the Eagle and Shield motif followed by "U.S. / SPRINGFIELD" ahead of it. The tang has a partial "2", "1862" date and eagle head markings from the original rifle-musket. The tang of the buttplate is stamped with "US". There are two crisp inspector cartouches on the left stock flat. Manufactured in relatively limited numbers, the Model 1865 First Allin Conversion Rifles saw hard service and are rarely encountered in fine or better condition. Complete with original iron tulip head ramrod.

Overall condition of the musket is Very fine, near museum quality. The barrel is factory bright with no signs of cleaning. The barrel bands, buttplate and trigger guard are all factory bright as well with some minor pitting. The breech block, lock and hammer have the correct smooth dark oil quenched black with some of the casehardening pattern remaining on the breech block, lock and hammer. The stock is also very fine with a few scattered minor dents and dings. The markings are crisp. The mechanics are excellent.
