pen tip, this pen captures one of the most important times in our Nations History.

Model 1861 Springfield Rifle Musket (Replica Clip)
The Model 1861 commonly referred to as the "Springfield", was a single-shot muzzle-loading rifle favored for its range, accuracy and reliability. It fired
the 58 Caliber Minie'nBall with a maxium effective range of 500 yards (five football fields end to end). It was the most common firearm used by both
the Union and the Confederate forces.

58 Caliber Minie' Ball (Replica Cap)
This was the most widely used bullet in the Civil War by both sides.
Originally a French Army bullet, it was offically adopted by Americans in 1855. Rings were added to the original design to help ease the bullet down the
barrel as well as to collect powder residue when fired. It was first used in the Model 1861 Springfield Rifle Musket. A detailed replica is used as the clip of this pen.

44 Caliber 1860 Colt Army Revolver Bullet (Replica Tip)
This bullet was used in the 1860 Colt Army Revolver, the favorite side arm for the cavalry, infantry and artillery troops. It was the most widely used handgun
of the Civil War. This revolver was a six shot model allowing the user to fire six times before needing a reload. The bullet aws designed for the revolver's
round barrel.
