Burnside ...Rifle Co. Fifth Model ...Civil War Carbine...........LAYAWAY?
AVAIABLE!!!.......Burnside ...Rifle Co. Fifth Model ...Civil War Carbine...........LAYAWAY?
serial #2473, .54 cal, 21" barrel with a mostly bright about very good plus bore showing some scattered light pitting and oxidation with otherwise strong rifling throughout. The barrel of this carbine has mostly toned to a mild gray-brown patina showing some scattered remnants of old light pitting and minor brown freckling. The action has mostly toned to an attractive silvery case-hardened patina again showing some remnants of minor pinprick pitting and brown speckling. There are a few small moderate dings along the top edges of the action and the saddle ring bar is bent slightly but this is unobtrusive. The upper tang shows some remnants of original bright blue and the markings have softened slightly but remain intact and legible. The smooth walnut stocks remain in fair-good condition showing some older added finish over moderate dings and mild abrasions along with a few light chips along the edges and a repaired 1 1/2" spot of filler at the rear left corner of the forend; there are still two visible cartouches along the left side wrist. The barrel band, the breechblock retainer pin and its small plunger are older period replacements and the barrel and breechblock are matching the frame. The original sights, saddle ring and rear swivel remain intact and the action seems to function well mechanically. A very good Burnside carbine with a lot of character.......2nd Firearm ships FREE with this one! S/H $40...Thanks....Greg 17
