SMITH Civil War Carbine....NICE!....LAYAWAY?
LAYAWAY?......serial #9149, .50 cal, 21 5/8" part round part octagon barrel with a mostly bright very good bore showing some scattered light pitting and oxidation with otherwise strong rifling throughout. The barrel of this carbine retains about 90% original blue showing some scattered fine pinprick, small areas of old oxidation staining and handling marks. The action retains a healthy amount of strong case-hardened colors throughout toning to mild gray-brown and showing some speckling. The buttplate shows overall light pitting and the small parts are a relatively even mix of original bright blue and mild plum-brown patina. The rear sight leaf is a somewhat crude replacement and all markings remain intact and strong. The smooth walnut stocks remain in very good plus condition retaining much of their oil finish showing some minor oxidation leaching near the buttplate, light dings and minor handling marks. Great bore! The stock retains a strong "JH" inspector cartouche on the left side and actually shows some rather nice figure near the toe. Barrel-to-frame fit shows a hint of minor play and the action seems to function well mechanically. 2nd Firearm ships FREE, with this one. Thanks....Greg a94-95, saved folder
