Item ID #1964

Bore in the 40" barrel is shiny with good lands and grooves. It will rate a seven on a one to ten scale. There is an 1859 date on the lock and barrel. Action is smooth and tight. It works perfectly. Lock is correctly marked. It does have a tape priming system. It works. Wood to metal is very good. Two cartouches on the stock opposite the lock. Looks like what are probably rack numbers close to the cartouches and to the front of the butt plate. Inspector markings are complete and correct. Rear sight is correct and complete. It is tight. This Harper's Ferry Model 1855 will make a great addition to any collection.
