1841 Mississippi Rifle 1841 Mississippi Rifle
Part No: 75-201

This historic .58 cal. percussion lock weapon gained its name as a result of its performance in the hands of Jefferson Davis’ Mississippi Regiment during the heroic stand at the Battle of Buena Vista. The Mississippi is also known as the “Yaeger” (misspelling of the German Jaeger). The rifle was obsolete by 1855, however, it had previously proven so effective that it was rebuilt to take the place of the .58 cal. mini for the Union Army by the Colt Company.MFG - Pedersoli
