Check to see if you're Model 1841 "Mississippi" Rifle is Factory Made, mixed during alteration or a parts gun.

  • Whitney Miss. barrels are marked US over SK, SM, GW, JH, JCB, JPC, or ADK over VP. Marked Steel on barrel flat. Two cartouches opposite lock. This is not to be confused with a small VP, eaglehead found on Harpers Ferry made rifles.

  • This information was given by Trevor Bovee and me after viewing over hundreds of Mississippi Rifles.
  • Patina and consistent wear is the key to all guns. Many Mississippi Rifles were mixed during arsenal alterations, some have Springfield musketoon locks in them since actual use. Snell mississippi rifles can have confederate modifications, etc. Experience is crutial. The more you handle, the more you will learn.
