Reportedly 5,002 of these carbines were ordered by the U.S. Government based on a similar overall design to the Starr percussion carbines but with a rimfire breechblock and case ejector. This example has the standard sights and factory markings, two faint cartouches on the wrist. "GDM", George D. Moller collection mark on the toe. Provenance: The George Moller Collection
Fine, retains 30% of the original case colors mostly in sheltered areas and 50% of the original blue on the barrel with the balance of both mostly a smooth grey patina and a small patch of pitting on the right at the muzzle. The wood is also very good with minor dings and scratches scattered throughout and a faint cartouche. Mechanically excellent.
