Carbines like this were issued by Cavalry troops during the Civil War. The weapon measures 39'' overall & the shorter length made it easier to handle on horseback. The walnut stocks are in very good condition, carrying a military oil finish with numerous small scratches, scrapes & contusions. There is a very faint cartouche above the saddle ring bar which are hard to make out. The barrel & other metal surfaces carry a dark grey/brown patina, with some light pitting near the muzzle.

Left side of receiver is stamped: ''C. SHARPS PAT/SEPT. 12TH 1848''. Right side of receiver stamped: ''C. SHARPS PAT. OCT 5TH 1852'. The serial number is located on top of the receiver tang. Bore is good, fairly clear, with some light scaring, but distinctive visible rifling. Single Iron barrel band is present & matches the barrel surface. Bottom tang carries the lever locking lug. Single trigger. Standard military style metal buttplate. Action is strong & mechanically sound. Converted to 50-70 cal. In 1865 to 1869. Manufactured in Hartford Conn. Appears to be a complete & battle used carbine. Antique, No FFL Req. - Value: 3000 to 5000
