  • Description: Serial #52916, .54 caliber, 22 barrel with a very good bore that has dark freckling within the grooves. This is US inspected carbine with matching numbers, and has a dark plum-brown patina mixing with pewter gray throughout. Additionally, there is mild pinprick pitting at the muzzle, as well as on the top of the breech-block and nose of the hammer. The walnut forend and buttstock have an added military oil finish over numerous handling marks and blemishes scattered throughout the wood, including a short hairline crack running up from the tip of the patchbox, and a slightly longer crack running back from the lockplate. An inspector cartouche can bee seen faintly on the left side of the wrist. The action is tight and fully functional, and this is a great looking Civil War Sharps in very good plus condition. Antique
