The famous U. S. Model 1863 contract musket was made by Remington. Unlike Springfield or Enfield muskets, this model is trimmed in brass, with a patchbox and folding leaf rear sight with three leaves, for 100 yards, 200 yards, and 300 yards. This 1863 Rifled Musket was manufactured in Italy and imported by Hy Hunter Firearms Mfg. Co. Hollywood California. Trigger reach is 13-1/2" for today's average size shooter. Weight is 8.8 pounds.

Not well known today, the elite Zouave troops of 1860 were dressed in Arabian style uniforms, after the fierce fighters that the U. S. encountered when we fought the pirates of Tripoli, who paid little attention to "the rules of war". It was a high honor to be accepted into a Zouave unit. Our Commando units and Green Beret units are modern equivalents of Zouave troops. Locally, we had the Saint Anthony Fire Zouaves, a famous unit. Saint Anthony was the old name of Saint Paul, Minnesota.

The .58 caliber tapered round 33" barrel is rifled with three equal lands and grooves, exactly like the original musket. The barrel is finished to a dark blue with a few small areas that have been discolored from use and handling. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. The correct three leaf military sight is marked for elevation. Many used military muskets are cannibalized by their owners, and fitted with inappropriate adjustable sights. This correct rear sight makes this rifled musket legal for NMLRA "as issued" military musket matches.

Stocked in walnut with patches of figure visible over the length of the stock. The stock has a few minor handling marks. The brass patchbox is retained with three blued steel screws, as original. Opening the patchbox reveals a cut cavity to store a spare musket nipple and patch worm, both of which are included. The unmarked buttplate comb, should have a U.S stamp. The correct V over P proof mark of Springfield Armoury stamped at the breech, have also been omitted. The modern Italian proof marks (required by their law) are stamped in there place. The top of the breech is marked in two lines Hy Hunter Firearms Mfg. Hollywood, California, U.S.A.. The rounded toe of the stock has picked up a few handling marks, and this area is one of the most commonly marked areas on military rifles. The barrel is secured with two brass barrel bands with forward mounted band springs. The steel ramrod is shaped with a flared tulip tip and has male threads on the hidden end, a few of the leading threads are marred. Two brass sideplate washers are inlet flush into the stock, and counter bored to accept the two lock bolts. Finished in a warm brown, the walnut stock has a few small handling marks. The brass triggerguard is fitted with a correct swivel for your military style leather sling.

The percussion lock plate is stamped with a eagle. The color case hardening has muted colors. The lock has a strong mainspring and a smooth release. The breech is fitted with a 5/16-24 standard threaded nipple for a musket cap. If you require a spare order our nipple #MMS-I, use the #NW-100 nipple wrench to install the nipple. The rear inside edge of the bolster where the nipple is installed is bright. .

Used with a few marks, the bore is bright and has been well maintained. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted. Else if it does not fit you, return it in unfired condition for same-day refund. Postage is your only risk, when you order any one-of-a-kind gun from Track, whether new, used, or antique. Postage is your cost of inspection.
