Description

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. But what made this rifle so special? Why was it necessary sometimes to deploy entire artillery batteries to silence one single Whitworth sharpshooter?

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