This manual covers what remains of the sole surviving M1862 2.25 Inch Mountain Rifle known to be in existence. The photo on the cover of this manual was of two C.S. Mountain Rifles, reported to have been captured by Federal troops and retained as war trophies. Both guns, a M1862 Mountain Rifle and a C.S. “Travis” Stockton cannon, were donated to a WWII scrap drive in 1944. The information in this manual was obtained only from the most important iron parts that survived the scrap drive.
