It is without question that the most feared rifle of the American Civil War was the British-made Whitworth rifle, imported by the Confederacy and delivered by courageous blockade runners thru the U.S. Navy blockade.

Our reproduction features the original 1:20 twist hexagonal rifling. The stock is oiled American walnut, and we are really proud of this beauty.
