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

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.

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