This is an absolutely stunning example of this very popular, reliable and accurate Union issued carbine that exhibits little to no actual field use. The weapon retains 98%+ original blue and case hardened finish and the mechanical action is like brand new. The stock has two clear and crisp military government inspector cartouches and the bore is simply mint.
If you want one of the BEST examples of this type of weapon known, here you go!
Chambered in the powerful .50 Maynard metallic cartridge, this percussion weapon was extremely accurate and very light and favored by the Union cavalry—and the Confederate cavalry, too, if they could get their hands on one!
