Between 1848 and 1860 the arsenals of Springfield and Harper's Ferry converted some 700,000 flintlock rifles into percussion models.

Some 23,500 rifles, with a rifled barrel, were sent to Messina in Sicily in August 1860 to equip the partisans of Garibaldi during the famous Expedition of Mille, but it is probable that only half were distributed. The remainder having served to equip the National Guards of various Sicilian cities.
