BURNSIDE Civil War Carbine....LAYAWAY?
LAYAWAY???....serial #12106, .54 cal, 21'' round barrel with a bright near excellent bore showing a few spots of mild oxidation nearer the muzzle and crisp rifling throughout. The barrel of this honest carbine retains about 90% original blue showing some overall toning to plum-brown patina under bright light, some sparsely scattered specks of light oxidation staining and a few pinprick pits along the left side. The action is toning to an attractive silvery case-hardened patina showing scattered areas of old mild oxidation and generous smoky colors throughout, a few wisps still quite vibrant. The barrel band and buttplate also show some remnants of smoky colors and the tangs and lever retain about 60% original bright blue showing overall flaking to mild gray-brown with some areas of old oxidation staining. The breechblock itself retains about 95% wonderful bright blue and the chamber is nearly immaculate. The Burnside markings on the lockplate are rather soft and only partially legible and all of the other markings remain intact and strong. The smooth walnut buttstock and forend remain in very fine condition showing somewhat worn finish and darkening slightly from the years with some scattered light dings and a small abrasion along the forend. The buttstock retains two strong cartouches on the left side wrist and actually shows some rather nice subtle grain figure throughout. All original hardware remains intact, the serialized parts are matching and the action seems to function well mechanically. A handsome fifth model Burnside carbine. MIRROR BORE, light rifling......2nd Firearm ships FREE, with this one. Thanks....Greg a88-89, Saved pictures
