Springfield U.S. Model 1867 Navy Cadet Rolling Block Rifle

.50-45, 32.5" round barrel secured by two barrel bands, no S/N. Blued and case hardened finish, two-piece walnut stock and forend. Right side of frame marked with P / F.C.W. inspection; left side of frame marked with an anchor. Buttplate tang marked with the usual US and rack numbered C / 359. Standard two-line Remington patent markings on receiver frame. Correct US M1864 pattern rear sight, original front sight/bayonet lug, not fitted for sling swivels, as is correct. Correct cleaning rod. Accompanied by a correct pattern US M1867 Cadet socket bayonet with a 16" blade, 3" socket and a .741" muzzle diameter that is in a US M1873 pattern scabbard with a USN brass rosette.


Fine. Retains strong traces of blued finish on the barrel and furniture, with the balance having a plum brown patina. The frame retains much of the vivid case colors. All markings in the metal remain crisp and clear. Mechanically functional, very good bore with some scattered light pitting. Stock very good with scattered bumps, dings, nicks and mars, a tiny chip out of the forend where it meets the frame on the reverse, and some old tape residue on the obverse wrist. Bayonet good to very good with scattered light pitting and staining. Scabbard near very good.
