Product Description

The Smith Calvary carbine .50 caliber – had a unique rubber cased bullet. This Civil War arm was an interesting “top break“ breech-loading carbine.

This Carbine is .50 caliber, percussion, in very nice condition. The Union received almost the entire wartime production of all Smith Carbines, slightly over 30,000 were made. Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and an Alabama Union Calvary unit carried this arm. The serial number of this example is 6327 which is stamped on both the receiver and barrel breach assembly. It is also equipped with a saddle ring and bar.

Note : The left side of the receiver, is stamped vertically, with "ADDRESS / POULTNEY & TRIMBLE / BALTIMORE, U.S.A." They were the distributors of Smith Carbines. Below the address line, also stamped vertically, just behind the ring bar, is "SMITH'S PATENT / JUNE 23 1857." Towards the front left side of the receiver, stamped vertically, is "MANUFACTURED BY / AM'N M'CH'N WKS. / SPRINGFIELD MASS." ( unique abbreviation for American machine works). The stampings are all still crisp and clear. The inspector mark is “JH,” stamped on the barrel and stamped in cursive with a border around it is another “JH,” on the stock. 

 The front sight is a brass blade. The rear site has a post war modification, a tiny piece of metal is skillfuly welded to it, with two small drill holes, creating a very nice peep sight for this gun. It could have been used for hunting or for some sort of competition after the War, with newer/different ammo.

The rifling is very good and the barrel is nice and shiny and looks as if the the percussion nipple has been replaced at some point. Please look at photos. No international shipping. Shipping cost to be determined by location and a time of sale. Thanks for looking.
