Offered here is the rear portion of a Model 1863 rifle musket, with severe damage, that was reportedly found in a Western Pennsylvania cave by arrowhead hunters.

The rifle musket looks to have been altered, possibly to a shotgun, as many were following the Civil War. The stock was shortened as it is cut at the location of the rear-most barrel band. The flat opposite the lock plate is also well rounded over.

All gun metal parts are well rusted from being exposed to the elements. The M1863 lock and hammer are present. The hammer moves but does not hold a half- or full-cock. Good mainspring however. Trigger, trigger guard, and butt plate are present. Two inches of the barrel remain with breech plug tang; but breech plug is missing.

What remains of the walnut stock measures approximately 26” long. Heavy wear and damage overall. Appears to have been painted silver at one time.  [jet] [ph:L]
