Harpers Ferry Model 1855 2 Band Rifle Musket with 1859 dated lock plate and Maynard Tape Priming System...Barrel date is 1860...This model is the shortened version of the classic 3 band rifle and was produced shortly before Confederate forces raided and took the arms and equipment from Harpers Ferry in 1861...Approximately 7,000 of these 2 band rifles were produced and their heavy use early in the war by both sides resulted in a most of these weapons being destroyed with remaining correct examples quite scarce.
