The most widley used rifle during the Civil War, the 1861 Springfield was a favorite due to its’ reliability, accuracy, and range. The 40″ barrel and .58 caliber allowed for an effective range of 200-300 yards. While difficult to find during the early Civil War years, it became the first rifle produced at such a large scale and its’ popularity continues today.
