M66 Franco-Prussian War Rifle

M66 Franco-Prussian War Rifle

This rifle was refurbished by Springfield in 1870 for shipment to France for the war effort. The shipment arrived in France just as the war ended and SH&G bought the entire shipment and brought the guns back to the USA for sale to the public. This is one of the guns. You can see where Springfield almost sanded the ESA cartouche off the stock and applied the HSH cartouche as an indicater the gun was fit for service. The gun appears unused since refurbishing and the bore is pristine new. These arms are getting very hard to find in this condition. The rifle has the original script N firing proof and two sets of stock inspector stamps from when it was a musket and another set after it was altered to a breech loader.
