The famous U. S. Model 1863 Contract Rifle was originally manufactured 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. Trigger reach is 13-3/4" for today's average size shooter. Weight is 9.5 pounds. This rifle comes with a brass handle bayonet with black leather scabbard and frog. The blade of the bayonet measures 21-1/2" long and the overall length is 26" with the handle. The bayonet has been fitted to barrel and slides on easily. A brown leather sling is also included with this rifle.

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.

The tapered round 33" barrel is rifled with three equal lands and grooves, exactly like the original musket. Nicely polished and blued, the blue finish has some wear from use, disassembly at the barrel bands, and cleaning. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. The top of the barrel is marked EUROARMS OF AMERICA. The left side of the barrel near the breach is marked CAL. 58 FOR BLACK POWDER ONLY along with the serial number and various proof marks.

Top view shows the correct three leaf military sight marked for elevation and installed 3" ahead of the breech. The leafs are very loose and flip up with ease. The front sight is installed 1-1/4" behind the muzzle. A bayonet lug is installed on the right side of the barrel 4" behind the muzzle.

Finished in a warm brown, the walnut stock has handling marks from service, and disassembly for cleaning. We note a 1" crack on the top of the forearm just behind the first barrel band on the left side. The brass triggerguard is fitted with a correct swivel for the military style leather sling. The trigger bar is marked MADE IN ITALY in small print. The forward swivel is mounted to the forward barrel band. The brass patchbox is retained with three blued steel screws, as original. The brass buttplate is retained with two blued steel screws. All of the brass has dulled with speckles of patina from use and storage. The steel ramrod is retained by the brass barrel bands. The ramrod has male 5-.8mm threads.

The percussion lock has been color case hardened and is stamped with an eagle over U.S. Internally, the lock is nicely factory finished and functions as it should. The trigger release is actually quite smooth for a military musket. The 8-.1mm threaded musket nipple is designed to accept a musket cap. Two brass sideplate washers are inlet into the stock, and counterbored to accept the two lock bolts on the opposite side of the gun.
