    RARE, MINT BORE, Starr Arms Co Yonkers New York 1858 Patent American Civil War Era .54 Calibre Single Shot Lever Action Breech Loading Cavalry Carbine With Saddle Bar & Ring. Sn 15088 - 15088

    The Starr carbine was a breechloading single-shot rifle used by the United States Army. Designed in 1858, the Starr was primarily used by cavalry soldiers in the American Civil War. In January 1858, Ebenzer Starr submitted his design for a single-shot, breech-loading rifle to the Washington Armory for evaluation. During testing, the rifle was noted to have no misfires, and its accuracy was considered better than average. The rifle was adopted as the Model 1858 carbine. Between 1861 and 1864, over 20,000 were produced by the Starr Arms Company of Yonkers, New York. In 1865, the Government ordered 3,000 Starr carbines, these proved to be successful, and an additional 2,000 were ordered. The Starr carbine proved to be effective during the Civil War. During the war, the Starr Arms Company had been the fifth largest supplier of carbines and the third largest supplier of .44 calibre single action pistols. This is original example of the Starr 1858 carbine in excellent condition. The metal work has even patina and its original wood stock has just the knocks, bumps and bruises to be expected. The 21" barrel’s bore is near mint, clean with crisp rifling. It measures 38” overall. It is fitted with ‘v’ notch plate rear sight and block fore sight together with steel saddle bar & ring. It is also fitted with a steel butt plate. The action plate is stamped ‘Starrs Patent Sept 14th 1858’ and the action ‘Starr Arms Co Yonkers NY’ which is repeated on the barrel. The carbine is serial number '31350'. The weapon’s loading and firing actions work perfectly. Price for this piece of American Civil War history includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre weapon no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 15088
