Default Civil War Era Gun ID help

Can anyone tell me what type of gun this is and its approx value. A buddy's dad came across it recently and has no idea what he is talking about when it comes to guns.

IF it's genuine it's a Sarson and Roberts contract rifle. A lot of replicas have been defarbed and correct markings stamped on them. That one looks a lil too good to be true. S&R only made 5000 61 Springfields. I don't know what a real S&R would be worth but a standard Springfield in that shape would run a real world value of around 1200-1500. The bayonet would bring about 125.00

The South used a lot of Springfields too, just as the North used a lot of Enfields.
