    1844 Model 1841 Whitney Mississippi Rifle - Help

    Hi all,



    I am helping a very nice lady with the sale of this great Whitney rifle. I need so help on identifying it and ensuring that I help her get the greatest value for it.

    Are there any Model 1841 experts here that would not mind helping me out?

    This rifle looks original and does not have any conversions such as bayonet lug addition etc.

    Many thanks for all assistance or help to be pointed in the right direction

    Nice Old Gun

    You have a good old gun there, used by the North & South in great numbers. The only thing againest it's value is I would say the condition, a bit rougher than most collectors are looking for.

    Jim makes a good point about the use of the M1841 by both sides in the ACW, but I have to disagree with his evaluation of condition. While it may lower the value on this particular example, it is NRA Antique VG condition and it is complete and "as issued", most collectors will be happy to have it as is.

    For a good estimate of value, check Flayderman's Guide to Antique American Firearms and Their Values . Hopefully, when someone purchases it, they will do no more than wiping the iron/steel parts with an oily rag and preserve it as is. It is a good example that "saw the elephant".
