Long Pattern Cruciform Cut Wooden Musket Tompion For a .58 Caliber Civil War Rifle
Click on an image to enlarge
This is a very nice original Civil War tompion. This is the wooden plug that was designed to keep the water out of the end of a rifle. This is the size that fits the .58 caliber Springfield or Contract maker made rifles. It would look correct in any model 1855, 1861 or 1863 rifle. This one has a nice lighter tone to the wood that displays beautifully. This is the pattern version with the swell on the split end. This pattern is illustrated in the middle of page #286 of the Gun Tool Book by Shaffer, Rutledge and Dorsey. They state that this pattern is possibly a contract made piece. It measures 2-7/8th inches in length. This is a fantastic addition to any Civil War rifle.
