This is an excellent original gun worm for a Civil War era Model 1861 rifle. This is the early style with the tall base. These were used for the cleaning out of the musket bore. They held a wad of tow (the fiber of flax, hemp or jute). This tow has then used for regular maintenance of bore cleaning. They could also be used for the extracting a bullet if there was a problem with firing or any other reason they needed to pull the bullet out. It is like the one illustrated on page 110 of the gun tool book. This one is in excellent non-excavated condition.
