When the advantages of rifled guns that fired across greater distances became apparent, many of these older smoothbores were converted into rifled weapons. This 1841 was one of the converted artillery pieces. Accuracy and range were greatly improved by re-boring its 3.67" caliber to 3.8" and rifling it in then "James" fashion to accept the patent projectiles designed by General Charles T. James.
