Confederate Rifle

 

Confederate Rifle Pictures is among the most popular Civil War artifacts that we cover.  Looking at the picture above of 5 of the most popular Civil War Rifles.   The Harpers Ferry rifle,  the Austrian Lorenz and both the British and Short Enfield are among the most popular Civil War era rifles around.   One of the most famous Confederate Rifles is the U.S. Springfield pictured at the bottom.

While many of these original 1860s era rifles were not accurate like the modern rifle, they were very useful in the 30-50 yard range, which was something that was never possible in previous wars.   These Civil War Era guns are very valuable to today’s collectors and some that are in good shape have fetcher up to 5 figures in auctions.
