"RICHMOND MUSKETOON. SN NSN. Cal. 58. As Mr. Michel will later state, these 30" bbl musketoons or short rifles are quite controversial as to their origin. This gun does indeed have correct Richmond lock and hammer, the "VP" proof has a broken "P" as is expected in Harpers Ferry and Richmond-produced guns. Trigger guard shows metal faults commonly seen in Richmonds. Mr. Michel states in his notes: "Although this weapon is the subject of some controversy as a result of its unusual configuration and the lack of a specific reference to it in the Richmond production records, examples, albeit rare, are to be found in old collections of Confederate weapons. Further, the catalog of September 1870 stores of condemned ordnance at the Springfield Armory does list some 318 Richmonds 'altered to smooth bore' as are these musketoons. The bbl is 30" in length with 2 bands comprising the rear and middle bands of a 3-band rifled musket. Stock tip and buttplate are iron. Lock is a standard Richmond 1863 low humpback lock. Most unique about this arm is the slimming of the stock around the lockplate and the flat on the left side of the stock opposite the lockplate. With original 15" bayonet, narrowed blade and unmarked. It is my opinion that these musketoons are the subject of the reference in the October 12, 1863 report by W. S. Downer, Superintendent of the CS Armory in Richmond to Josiah Gorgas, Chief of Ordnance, providing a production report for the Richmond Armory for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1863. In that report he lists 651 'new smooth bore carbines cal. 69' distinct from 2791 'new rifle carbines caliber 58'". CONDITION: Metal surfaces are gray with scattered pitting.  Stock is sound with numerous dings and dents.  Bbl shows no rifling, as a smooth bore should.  Petite 15-1/2" bladed bayonet fits gun snugly.  Bayonet is cleaned and matches color of bbl. 4-31248 JS155 (3,000-6,000)"
