The 1863 Zouave rifle was originally produced by Remington Arms under a contract with the US Government. Very few models actually saw action during the Civil War and none were distributed to any army division. However, the Zouave was created to put a more manueverable firearm into the hands of soliders and along with its' barrel strength it was also prized for its' overall beauty. The patch box additionally allowed for storage.
This rifle is an authentic reproduction made with high quality, premium metal and wood finishes as well as hand-oiled wood stocks. Approved by the North-South Skirmish Association (N-SSA). Perfect for shooters, hunters, enthusiasts, collectors, and those performing re-enactments. .58 Caliber, Percussion, Rifled.
