This Armory Bright finish is the most historically accurate finish as the browning found on the stock M1841 reproduction rifles is a spray-on finish and not remotely correct. Also, many Civil War-used M1841 were polished to Armory Bright before being issued because they had been sitting in storage for over a decade by the time the war broke out and often had to be cleaned up before use. Armory bright finishes are also appropriate for most of the 58 caliber M1841's (with the exception of the larger firms like Harper's Ferry) as original records indicate that polishing the barrels and locks was standard practice by many of the smaller firms who re-bored the guns. The only correct stamping then is a VP and eagle stamped on the breach.
