This is a very cool weapon! This is one of the guns from the famous Confederate Armory in Richmond, Virginia. It is the short version of the rifle and is referred to by collectors as the Richmond Carbine. It is a pure Confederate production. The stock is a shorter version of the Richmond wood so it can accommodate the full-length 25 inch barrel. If you notice it has the correct "pinched" style front sight which is correct for the Richmond carbine. The rear sight is an original that has both of the leafs intact. It has the original 2 barrel bands intact and has had the 3 sling swivels removed. Behind the triggerguard is where the third sling swivel was at one time. This sling swivel is a classic trait that is correct only for this carbine version of the .58 caliber Richmond. In the channel underneath the barrel, it has a hand made period replacement ramrod. As you can see the stock has a pretty ancient look all over with wear from lots of service. One thing that is cool about the stock is that eons ago someone carved an oval into the front flat of the shoulder stock wood. It is the perfect size to place a belt buckle size inlay. The lockplate has the 1863 production date to go along with the clear "C.S.” stamp and "RICHMOND, VA” production location. The action catches on both positions but the main spring is broken so there is no snap. This gun came out of Kentucky recently. It is completely untouched in the condition it was found. It is your opportunity to own this wonderful untouched Confederate gun without spending $10,000.
