    ~ British Circa 1785 Flintlock Cavalry Carbine ~


    This is a well preserved carbine with brass fittings, most probably a private purchase piece.

    Its lock plate is stamped ‘Egg’ and the top of the barrel has three British proof marks.

    The left side is fitted with a steel bar to attach to a saddle.

    The stock is of walnut and the original ramrod is present.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The barrel length is 22 inches (56 cm) and the overall length of the carbine is 37.8 inches (96 cm). The bore is three quarters of an inch.

    ~ Condition ~

    The lock mechanism is clean, the barrel with some areas of light bruising and very tidy brass work. It half cocks, cocks and releases with a moderate spring.

    The stock has a crack forward and above the lockplate and another one on the left side around the forward pin.

    A rare piece.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £22 or the carbine can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard....Read full description
