Description

M-1863 Remington Zouave Rifle & Bayonet.

Remington Zouave percussion rifle in.58 caliber, appears to be unissued, or hardly any use. It has a  bright bore, no visible primer residue around the cone/breech area. The barrel retains nearly all the original blue finish, with only a few thinning area on the surfaces overall.  The lock and hammer retain 95% or better case colors. 

The walnut stock in in excellent plus condition with only slight rubs and dings and minor scratches. The brass furniture is excellent, with the bands appearing to have never been cleaned, the buttplate shows some poorly polished tang, but overall still shows the nice original finish.  The patch box has most of the original polished finish. The inner patch box contains its original spare nipple. Inspector cartouches are extremely clear. Very little room for improvement with this one. 

Mechanics, markings, edging around the lock and side panel are excellent.  This is a great example and not overpriced.

The bayonet and scabbard are in excellent condition. The bayonet has a bright blade with slight blemishing, and several of the inspector markings in the brass and an “H” in the blade.  The leather on the scabbard, and the stitching is excellent. There are a few small areas where the leather has been expertly repaired, and is strong and not in jeopardy of breaking. The brass scabbard tip is tight to the leather.  A nice bayonet complete.

The bayonet with it scabbard is included in the price of $3750.00  I will break up the pair with prices for each adding up more than for the price of the pair.

$3400.00 for the rifle.

$450.00 for the bayonet & scabbard.
