Excellent Civil War Smith Cavalry Carbine

  • Price: $3,095.00
  • Maker: Smith
  • Model: Carbine
  • Caliber: .50 Cal

  • Description: Serial #10013, .50 Caliber, 21 1/2 barrel with an excellent, bright bore. The barrel has most of the original blue remaining, with some very mild freckling just starting to appear, heaviest along the breech facets. The frame has 75-80% of the original color case-hardening remaining, that has begun to turn to a smooth, plum-brown color on the balance. The barrel lock spring has even, thin freckling, while the wrist ferrule still has bright fire blue visible, and the brass opener has ochre-yellow patina. The walnut stock and forend have an excellent original finish with scattered small handling marks and blemishes, as well as crisp inspector cartouches on the left side of the wrist. The barrel lock-up is rock solid and the mechanism is fully functional. This is a fantastic looking Smith and is in excellent condition overall. Antique
