The Lorenz rifle was an Austrian rifle used in the mid 19th Century. It was used in several European wars, and also featured prominently in the U.S. Civil War. The Lorenz rifle was designed by Austrian Lieutenant Joseph Lorenz on similar design principles as the 1861 Springfield Armoury Rifled Musket. It was first approved for manufacture in 1854, and was Austria's first all-new infantry firearm in decades. The Lorenz rifle was the third most widely used rifle during the American Civil War. The Union recorded purchases of 226,924 and the Confederacy bought as many as 100,000. This original Lorenz rifle was converted in the period to breech capping loading. It has standard steel lock and furniture and undamaged walnut stock with figured check piece all in excellent condition. The metal work has even patina.
