This carbine is an early First Model marked "MAYNARD ARMS CO. WASHINGTON" on the right of the frame and does not have the usual peep sight on the upper tang. Number "53" is stamped on the inside of the tape primer lid. The barrel is from a different early First Model and has "397" on the bottom at the breech and a "JT" inspection mark on the left at the breech. The other markings and features are standard. The stock has no inspection markings and is stamped with a "GDM" collection mark near the toe. Some of the First Model Maynard carbines were issued to the U.S. Army in the West prior to the Civil War, including to the Regiment of Mounted Riflemen and 1st U.S. Cavalry, and additional carbines were issued at the beginning of the Civil War. Provenance: The George Moller Collection
Fair with brown patina and mild pitting, repaired barrel pin, and some replaced small parts. The slightly undersized stock has some chips and filled spots by the repaired, rewelded lower tang and light scratches and marks. Mechanically fine.
