Antique CIVIL WAR BURNSIDE M1864 CAVALRY Carbine
Antique Saddle Ring Carbine Made in Providence, RI
Here we present an antique Burnside Model 1864, also known as the Burnside “5th” Model Carbine, made circa 1863 to 1865 by the Burnside Rifle Company in Providence, Rhode Island. General Ambrose Burnside was an official in the company before the war, but was not involved in wartime development of the rifle. It employed a cone shaped metal cartridge for use in the percussion firing system. Though historical literature refers to a Model 1863, none are marked with this date and collectors have generally referred to this model as the 5th model. Approximately 43,000 carbines of this model were produced, with the serial numbers running from 1 through 43,000. There were 19,000 that featured the “Model 1864” stamped on the top of the breech, with later production reverting back to use the 1856 patent date. Standard features include an iron buttplate, a single iron barrel band, a saddle riding bar and ring on the left side, a strap hook on the bottom of the butt, a double hinged iron loading lever which also serves as a trigger guard, a hinged sight, and a chamber tapered for the unique Burnside metal cartridge with a priming hole in the bottom for percussion.
The overall condition is very good. The iron parts have a gray/brown patina. The markings are clear. The walnut stock is smooth and solid. The bore is in very good shape, clean with strong rifling. The action is excellent. Here is a great example of one of the main cavalry weapons of the Union!
