    RARE, American Civil War Sharps 1859 Patent, Sharps & Hankins Model 1862 Navy Model .52 Rim Fire Obsolete Calibre Breech Loading Carbine With Exceptionally Rare To Find Original Leather Barrel Cover. Sn 17352 - 17352

    Christian Sharps was in partnership with William Hankins from 1862 until 1866. Referred to as the Sharps & Hankins Model 1862 carbine, this weapon is an American Civil War .52 calibre, rim fire, breech loading firearm designed by Hartford, Connecticut native Christian Sharps. Presented is an excellent original specimen of the Sharps & Hankins Navy Model carbine (The only difference between the Navy Model to the Army version is that the Navy Model had a leather barrel cover secured by 2 screws at the breech end to protect against sea water). The carbines were produced by the Sharps and Hankins firm in Philadelphia, PA. The weapon is 38 ¾” long overall. By operating the under lever, the barrel slides forward to accommodate the Sharps rim fire cartridge. The weapon, in excellent condition, has a 24” long barrel which is fitted with its extremely rare to find original leather barrel cover. The leather is secure with just the scuffs and minor tears to be expected of a Naval weapon of this age. The barrel has a clean bore with crisp rifling. The barrel at the breech has the correct screws either side to secure its leather cover. It has a block & blade foresight and graduated tangent type rear sight. The right side of the frame is stamped ‘Sharps & Hankins Philada’. The left side ‘Sharps Patent 1859’. The action tang is numbered ‘1244’ which is repeated on the loading lever. The walnut shoulder stock is original and undamaged with just knocks bumps and bruises to be expected. The butt plate is brass and it has a single sling swivel. The loading and firing actions work as they should. This Sharps & Hankins Model 1862 Navy carbine is a rare Civil War arm in its own right but is rendered even more desirable by presence of its original barrel cover. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre carbine no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 17352
