    RARE, ORIGINAL, MATCHING NUMBERS, American Civil War U.S. Cavalry Smith’s 1857 Patent .50” Calibre Break Action Percussion Carbine By American Arms Company Chicopee Falls Distributed By Poultney & Trimble of Baltimore, Maryland. Sn 10856 - 10856

    The Smith Carbine is a .50” calibre breech loading rifle patented by Gilbert Smith on June 23, 1857. The weapon successfully completed the Military Trials of the late 1850s and was used by various Cavalry units during the American Civil War. The Smith Carbine was unique in that it broke apart in the middle for loading by depression of a break lever located within the trigger guard and it used rubber cartridges which sealed the gases in the breech. The downside was that these cartridges were difficult to remove. The carbines were built by the American Arms Company in Chicopee Falls Massachusetts and other American manufacturers . The name of the distributor for the manufacturer, Poultney & Trimble of Baltimore, Maryland, is often stamped on the carbine's receivers. Early versions are often known to modern collectors as Artillery models, but all Smiths were issued to Cavalry units. This is an excellent original example of these rare carbines. The metal work has even patina throughout with no rust and it’s wood work is all original. The wood at the neck has at some time in its life had a professional repair. The carbine has a 21 ½” barrel which has crisp rifling. The carbine measures 38 ½” overall. It has a steel butt plate, trigger guard with extended tang, dolphin hammer, flip up ladder rear sight, block and blade fore sight and steel saddle bar with ring. The trigger guard has the correct barrel release lever and the top of the frame and barrel have the correct flat barrel release bar. The left side of the frame is crisply stamped with Smith’s 1857 patent detail and by the distributor Poultney & Trimble of Baltimore, Maryland (all illustrated). The right side of the frame is stamped by the manufacturer ‘American Arms Company in Chicopee Falls Mass’. The barrel block and trigger block have matching numbers ‘12812’. The butt plate tang is stamped ‘U.S’ indicating U.S. Cavalry Use. Price for this rare American Civil war piece includes UK delivery. NB As an antique percussion rifle no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 10856
