WTS Springfield Carbine & '03 Harpers Ferry
I'm posting the Springfield Carbine for Lucky Dave Cox. It is a
1795 Springfield pattern, 1814 date on the lock, carbine bore (.66)
with carbine clip and sling. This would be a great gun for a mounted
militia impression. Dave is asking $900 for the gun and it can be
seen in the SPRINGFIELD & HARPERS FERRY folder in the PHOTOS
section. Email Dave with questions or comments at
I've got an 1803 Harper's Ferry I'm needing to sell and thought I'd
offer it to y'all before going elsewhere with it. Pictures can be
found in the SPRINGFIELD & HARPERS FERRY folder.
I'm a secondhand owner of this particular gun and am not sure how
old it is but the gun is in very good shape. There are a few minor
dings and scratches to the stock but the metal is all in good shape.
The browning on the barrel is still intact and there is still
blueing on the lock. The only thing that's really wrong with this
gun is the patchbox tends to pop open from time to time. The lock
sparks well and goes off consistently and from what I've been told
the gun shoots straight though I've never put any roundball through
I failed to look at the markings on the barrel before coming in
today but there are a list of makers that offer the '03 Harper's
Ferry. Dixie Gunworks is currently selling their '03 for $850 and
I'm putting mine up for $650 but I'm willing to haggle a bit if
you're interested. I've got a hammerstall I'll throw in and I think
there's a flashguard for it somewhere around here that I'll throw in
if I can find it. This would make someone a good gun for anything
from War of 1812 to Texian War of Indepepndence events.
