1863 45 caliber

Post by Boston Bill » Sat Feb 09, 2019 4:36 pm

Just received my new to me 1863 3 band rifle with patch box 45 caliber. Has a Lyman 100th anniversary scope on it. Just ordered some bullets and stuff from Track of the Wolf and can't wait to shoot it. Has a 30" barrel for serial number 24xx.
Can someone maybe verify for me? I am assuming this is a Farmingdale? Anyone have a guess for year of manufacture?
Happy Shooting!!! :D

Hey Bill, I've got the little brother to your musket, a 45 cal Farmingdale carbine. How are you liking the rifle?
